Raggedcast News: Lowlek release an unsubtle gem of an album

Alt-rock group Lowlek have returned with their second album and it’s a cracking listen. 

With those trademark soft vocals and synth sounds as well as slick drums, ‘Unsubtle’ is anything but subtle in cementing itself in your eardrums. 

An unsubtle gem of album, the Cork outfit blend their alt-rock vibes with a new pop style that melds together to form some cracking tunes.  

Existing originally as an anonymous solo outfit, the now six-piece band have evolved hugely in recent years.  

With an eclectic musical style they draw on elements of psych, rockabilly, and bar-room and crooner ballads, with an emphasis on effects and lo-fi synth sounds.  

Lowlek pride themselves on their unique visual style, with in house audio-visual elements playing a huge part in their live set. 

Lowlek have made regular appearances on the Irish festival circuit, having played Castlepalooza, Knockanstockan, Vantastival, and Body & Soul 2018, 2019. 

Their second album ‘Unsubtle’ is out now and definitely worth checking out on Spotify.
