“…Lowell creates the most succinct portrait of that one alt girl you wish you could be but never had the gall to commit to.” – Refinery29
“…like Grimes having a dance off with Lykke Li. In a disco ball.” – VICE’s Noisey
“…high-minded, electronic sing-alongs concerned with gender politics and identity issues.”
“Lowell sounds like Sleigh Bells (with less angst) and PJ Harvey’s lovechild.”

Pairing deliriously catchy pop melodies and pointed gender politics to the forefront of her music, 22-year old LOWELL is the newest signee to renowned indie label Arts & Crafts. With her debut EP I Killed Sara V. having dropped this Tuesday, Lowell’s refreshingly rebellious approach places her at the vanguard of her pop contemporaries.
Lowell previously unveiled EP opener “Cloud 69” + “88,” and has recently shared “The Bells”– an infectious, hook-laden jam that will be stuck in your head for days. Fans can get a taste of the I Killed Sara V. EP at Refinery29, where it’s currently streaming in full as well as below.
Lowell has already found success across Canada & Europe through the release of 2012’s If You Can Solve This Jumble, a collaborative mini-album which she wrote & recorded with the super group Apparatjik featuring Grammy Award-winning producer Martin Terefe with members of Coldplay, Mew, and A-ha. Having performed in front of 60,000 attendees at the 2012 Roskilde Festival as well as at 2013’s Pukkelpop & CMJ, 2014 will undoubtedly find Lowell bringing her provocative music and politics to a larger audience.
Stay tuned for more from Lowell coming soon!
