Shy, Low’s debut self-titled full length creates a particular atmosphere; a feeling you can’t seem to shake even hours after the album has ended. Like a collective of divine watchmakers, Shy, Low has created a dynamic universe of deep swells, dark, cathartic crescendos, and powerful emotional releases, and all the while completely lacking lyrics, inviting the listener to define and explore this universe for themselves.
Richmond, Virginia’s Shy, Low has been together just over a year and have no plans to stop. Although the art and music scenes of their hometown have been somewhat diminished by city ordinances, Shy, Low continues to play whenever they can and with two tours out of the way, they seem to show no fear of crossing borders to reach new audiences. The road is a second home to Shy, Low and whenever the opportunity arises, they’re traveling.
Shy, Low does not crave fame or fortune. Their love for music and comradery drives them to create something new and unique. As long as those things exist in unison, they will continue on the path the music paves. The latest release embodies the values and experiences of Shy, Low whilst allowing the listener to create their own meaning.
