Needle Drop: Lowla, “Reckless”

Pop duo Lowla have arrived with their debut single “Reckless,” due for release on March 31, 2016. The single is Lowla’s take on the dark side of a break-up and the band’s first steps onto the scene. It’s a promising start.

The video for the track gives you an idea of where Lowla are coming from—straight from the ’90s! Think stonewash jeans, chokers, and neon—Saved By The Bell meets ’90s trip pop. “Reckless” is sparse at times and you can feel the emotion behind the music, but ultimately the girls are all about having fun.

Lowla are playing with the genre and mixing it up with “Reckless.” Sure, the look is a little forced and somewhat derivative, but this is something that can be forgiven as the pair hopefully mature into artists who learn to take inspiration from their influences as opposed to copying the look and style.

Musically, Lowla have made a promising first release and whilst the single isn’t perfect, it’s moving away from the dream pop that has dominated the genre for the last few years and brings a new edge to things that’s a welcome breath of fresh air.

Lowla’s single ‘Reckless’ is out on March 31st via DIY.
