Back To Creation is a record bubbling with the primordial soup of pop; a dozen songs packed full of imagination and invention. The title track alone takes you from icy Goldfrapp-style pop to a Dexy’s-influenced outro by way of Beatles-esque brass – and it’s brilliant.


Lowes began playing the piano at the age of four, following in the footsteps of her mother and grandmother – both accomplished classical pianists. But Sara was turned on to pop music by as a teenager, and soon began writing her own songs. A decade later, great adventures touring Europe and the US and hitting the festival circuit with her various bands behind her (kind of – she’s currently working on two different side projects), her songwriting has expanded from acoustic folk to kaleidoscopic, technicolour pop.

“When I first started out ten years ago, I was more of a basic songwriter,” Lowes says. “When it comes to writing now, I find all these new influences just come pouring out. I’m much more adventurous with my writing and arrangements. I find it all comes really effortlessly because of the musicians that I get to play with, they have helped shape my musical voice."
