Gracing the hardcore DIY music space The Lubber Fiend on Friday 8th July, Low Life come all the way over from Sydney to play a venue that could have been designed for their sound. Mixing post-punk with elements of shoegazey synth, the hybrid the soundscape they create is unique, loud and powerful.

With an impressive discography spanning several EPs and three albums, expect to hear popular tracks such as Dogging, which blends the sounds of atmospheric shoegaze with a darker, mysterious energy and a heavier rock edge and recent songs from last year’s album From Squats To Lots…, which are in turns ambient, angsty and have a nostalgic feel to them. A highlight to see performed will be Agony & XTC, a grunge track that incorporates all the greatness of the band’s lyrical edge, loud instrumentals and melancholic moodscape.

Support comes from Roxy Girls, whose modern post-punk draws similarities to the energies of Cabbage and Kaputt, both of whom they have supported for. Before them, brand new local Stannington will join the bill, culminating in a showcase of diverse passions for the heavy alternative genre.
