Low Girl is the work of multi-instrumentalist Sarah Cosgrove and her bandmates Toby, Tom and Brad. Described by DIY Magazine as “a peppy new pop talent”, the band released debut EP Big Now in May 2021 and haven’t looked back since. The EP was preceded by the release of the title track, which picked up support from BBC Radio 1, Radio X and was featured on the ‘New Music Fix’ playlist on BBC 6Music, as well as strong support from DIY, The Line of Best Fit and Spotify to name a few.
Always wanting to present bodies of work, Low Girl have released three EPs to date, alongside their four singles. Steve Lamacq is a big supporter at BBC 6music, with previous single ‘Bored’ going on to be playlisted, alongside Jack Saunders at BBC Radio 1, the station that made their second single ‘So Cool’ BBC Introducing TOTW. Spotify support has also been strong for the band, with three of their five single releases hitting the coveted New Music Friday UK playlists, as well as Hot New Bands, Fresh Finds and Melomania.
A debut, sold-out London headline show at The Lexington, BBC introducing slots at Reading & Leeds, SXSW and tour supports with Dream Wife, Pom Poko, October Drift and The Murder Capital have cemented the live sound of a band coming of age.
Citing artists ranging from King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard to King Princess, Phoebe Bridgers as inspiration, the breadth of Low Girls’ influences are clear to hear but never detracts from their own unique identity and innate songwriting ability.
“I think in a world where music is getting faster, louder, angrier. The artists that stick to perhaps the intricacies a little more seem to be having a bigger impact. It’s like a welcome respite from the appetite for chaos that we often have. Life is all about balance at the end of day, isn’t it? Low Girl bring the balance really nicely. Rhythms that play it cool, a soft touching vocal that states ‘I did it for me’. That’s rule number one in life, isn’t it. Always do it for yourself, first and foremost. Low Girl abiding by that brilliantly on that song right there, which will be a welcome addition to your playlist if you’ll have it.” – Jack Saunders
