Atlanta’s Warehouse will release their sophomore album, super low, at the end of the month by way of the Brooklyn-based label Bayonet. This is welcome news, since we named Warehouse a Band To Watch last year based on the strength of their unconventionally catchy debut LP Tesseract. We’ve heard a few singles off of super low — “Reservoir” and “Simultaneous Contrasts” — and today we’re premiering the title track. While Warehouse was recording super low, Elaine Edenfield was coping with a personal loss, which affected her creative process tremendously. She describes feeling “super low” as follows:
Super Low is about near loss, loss, and fear of loss. The slowest song, leaning towards the album’s most heavy subconscious undertones, Super Low is the coming to a point of resolution, understanding, and maturation.
Though this song was born of trauma, it’s not an upsetting first listen. There’s so much life in “Super Low” that it’s hard to fathom this song is about death until you listen carefully to Edenfield’s lyrics. Still, her words are resilient: “I can’t destroy the things/ They keep me alive/ And I can’t destroy the things/ That lead to where you lie.” Listen.
super low is out 9/30 via Bayonet.
