Reliably informed

Riff-heavy anthem Low is the debut single from reinvented rock band To Nowhere. Returning with a much-changed line-up, Low opens with chorus-laden bass and crisp drums which underpin lyrically sparse vocals that melodically outline a relationship turned sour.

The track explodes in a chorus of chunky distorted guitars and cymbals that is no less enjoyable for being inevitable. The band cite You And Me At Six and Nothing But Thieves as influences, but there’s a definite slice of 90s grunge in there too, especially in the vocal style, which has a Stone Temple Pilots-esque quality. Equally, the guitar solo, the quiet-loud structure and the thumping kick drum over howling harmonics before the outro all pay homage to the grunge palette.
