Lowertown Share New Single ‘No Way’

    Lowertown have shared ‘No Way’, the final advance single from their upcoming debut album. It follows the earlier cuts ‘Bucktooth’ and ‘Antibiotics’. Give it a listen below.

    “We wrote ‘No Way’ after our first time visiting LA together when we were 19,” the duo’s Olivia Osby explained in a statement. “We were staying in a remote AirBnB with no way to get around besides hyper inflated and unreliable Ubers. We didn’t know anyone in the city except a few surface level acquaintances. Avsha and I are both outwardly cynical and dark people so the positive, white, polished nature of the places, people and events we experienced in that time made our stomachs sour.”

    She continued: “The culture shock from the slow paces, authentic style of living we knew in Atlanta to the primped, nuanced, and aggressive way people were in LA astounded me. It was a whole other way of talking, thinking, and breathing. I felt extreme disgust with how parasitic and superficial so many interactions were. Every conversation felt like a way to uncover information about who we were, who we knew, and what we had to offer. In the end I was so tired of all the pleasantries, the forced smiles and the obsession with status and appearances. LA is beautiful, I like the hills and the sunsets but most of what I experienced in those weeks made me want to hurl.”

    Lowertown’s I Love to Lie is out October 21 on Dirty Hit. Check out our Artist Spotlight interview with Lowertown.
