Bio

Lowood’s soundscapes are sometimes desolate and sparce, sometimes as impalpable and intangible as air, but occasionally burst with the force of conviction that resembles the electric legacy of pop’s eternals. Part Joy Division, part Red House Painters, part Low, part Stina Nordenstam, ‘Close To Violence’ is obviously a work by lovers of music of intense emotional charge. But Lowood’s musical language is in the true sense of the word their own. Therese Johanssons personal songwriting, sense of melody and unparalleled voice appears to have been made for the sort of introspective pop music and expression that has become a necessity in her life. Therese and Kicki effortlessly complete each other, and with Therese’s crisp guitar adorned by Kicki’s lush keyboard melodies, this album is a masterwork of ethereal but jagged beauty.

While having a base in unadulterated, vaporous pop music, Lowood travels effortlessly between genres and sometimes keeps unorthodox company – especially on the live circuit. During the last two years, Therese and Kicki have played a plethora of solo gigs in every different kind of venue you can think of, from café’s to rock clubs to huge festivals. Lowood masters Bruce Springsteen celebratory concerts just as easy as the live company of such different acts as Tiger Lou, Asha Ali, Kristofer Åström and even the post-metal juggernaut of Cult Of Luna, which brought Lowood along for a European tour in 2008. It seems everyone, despite mundane genre limitations, is inspired by Lowood’s nerve.
