Low

Juli 1, 2021

The first album I got at the time was „Long Division“ and I found it quite dull. Then I heard their version of „Transmission“ (on the Joy Division cover album „A Means to an End“) and was stunned. Just by slowing it down, they added something to the song. Listening to their cover was like watching a flower open up to the sun in the morning in real-time. I also loved that making a song slower also usually makes it longer which is perfect if you love the song. Yesterday I listened to their first album „I Could Live in Hope“ for the first time and was totally overwhelmed. A perfect album for last night when the storm and rain hit hard outside. So warm and cosy, like a warm blanket to cover yourself with and hide from the tough world around.
