I’ve seen a lot of artists opt for the animated music video lately, and it’s not a terrible thing. As much as I love seeing a band perform live, there’s something interesting in the process of producing a video that doesn’t actually star the artist themselves.
I really love the shadowed drawings that give off such an eerie vibe in Lowlakes’ newest video, playing out a story behind Thomas Snowdon’s commanding vocals. Off their debut self-titled EP, “Buffalo Girl,” sits nicely in the Australian’s effortless dream-like sound. The combination of it all is deeply reminiscent of Radiohead, which makes me incredibly interested to see what they prepare for their next release.
