Seek Warmer Climes, Lower's 2014 debut album, sparkles with the harmonic dissonance and high-strung urgency of their post-punk forebears. But the Copenhagen-based four piece also channel the romance and drama of great singer-songwriters, from late-period Scott Walker to Bryan Ferry. The result is a hugely ambitious and affecting rock album that enters deeply personal and unusual sonic and topical spaces. Certainly, you don't have to dig deep to hear how far Lower's music sits from the traditional concerns of modern rock music. Adrian Toubro's lyrics are finely wrought emotional dramas that, in their poetic construction and raw honesty of delivery, gesture to the music of Walker or Leonard Cohen. With Seek Warmer Climes Lower developed an inimitable record that secures itself in your head with lyrics that resonate like psychic warnings.
