LOW

Low’s critically acclaimed Hey What has been nominated for a 2022 Grammy. The band is sharing the new video for “Hey”.

The critically acclaimed new album HEY WHAT by Low and producer BJ Burton have been nominated for a Grammy Award in the category of Best Engineered Album (Non-Classical). This is the band's first ever nomination in their 28 year career. HEY WHAT has also been featured in Best of 2021 lists from the likes of Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, The Wire, New York Times, Pitchfork, as well as Rough Trade UK’s Top 100 Albums of 2021.

The new video for their song Hey is directed by illy killy,

Focusing on their craft, staying out of the fray, and holding fast their faith to find new ways to express the discord and delight of being alive, to turn the duality of existence into hymns we can share,

HEY WHAT and its ten tracks—each built around their own instantaneous, undeniable hook—are turbocharged by the vivid textures that surround them. The ineffable, familiar harmonies of Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker break through the chaos like a life raft. Layers of distorted sound accrete with each new verse - building, breaking, colossal, then restrained, a solemn vow only whispered. There will be time to unravel and attribute meaning to the music and art of these times, but the creative moment looks FORWARD, with teeth.

HEY WHAT is Low’s thirteenth full length release in 27 years, and their third with producer BJ Burton.
