Adelaide four-piece Lowrider make an emphatic return with first single Days of Boredom, a gritty, confronting piece of alternative-soul that serves the first taste of their upcoming LP Black Stones.
Recorded over the past year between Red Bull’s Studios in Los Angeles and Chapel Lane Studios in Adelaide, Black Stones, the bands third studio album, is set for release on Friday 15th February 2013 through Illusive.
Without judgment or pretension, but perhaps a little frustration, Days of Boredom touches on modern life’s obsession with technology and social media over a catchy key riff, rolling basslines and a dense wall of crashing drums. It sets the tone for Black Stones, a stripped back and no nonsense approach from the band, showing distinct sonic progression from their previous material.
To celebrate, Lowrider played a sold out, intimate one-off show at Higher Ground in their hometown of Adelaide, December 1st. In addition to the new single, album and show announcement, Lowrider and Red Bull have partnered to release four behind-the-scenes videos (each Tuesday for the next month) showcasing their time at the Los Angeles Red Bull Studio and this year’s SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas, exclusively on Red Bull Australia’s website.
