Lower – “Soft Option” Video
Danish post-punk quartet Lower are part of the scene that also birthed the excellent Iceage, and while the two bands have many similarities, Lower’s music is more melodic, less abrasive, than that of their counterparts — though it’s equally great. “Soft Option” is the third single to be released from Lower’s forthcoming Matador debut, Seek Warmer Climes, and it’s paired here with a video. Directed by Kristian Emdal, the clip captures the four band members in a tense meeting: AA? Plotting a bank job? Trying to agree on a T-shirt design? In any case, it’s soundtracked by fantastic song. Check it out.
Seek Warmer Climes is out 6/17 via Matador.
