Lowlakes – Cold Company

Check out the icy smooth sounds of Australia’s Lowlakes.

Apparently “Cold Company” has been compared to “everything from Sigur Ros to Antony & The Johnsons,” but as far as vocals go, all I hear is late career comeback Cher (think Cher’s effects-laden vocals on “Believe” and her signature slides) – and as someone who loves Cher in all her fabulousness, I mean that in the best of ways.

Now let’s quickly and quietly move past the fact that I’ve just outed myself as a Cher fan and on to the fact that Lowlakes creates a stirring ethereal mix of cyclical piano lines that collide with a droning guitar over a dark 80’s inspired beat that would have been perfect for the Drive soundtrack.

Have a gander at the mesmerizing video below.
