Built on a bedrock layer of British post-punk and taking influence from the likes of The Smiths and Joy Division, The Lowtones are the new band in town, stirring a sound that turns heads everywhere it is heard.


Made up of Oliver Mavilio, Jack Abbott, Tim Cary and George Abbott, the Norwich-based quartet have this week released their illuminating new single ‘Breaking Out’ in preparation for their full EP, which will be released in early 2022.


It is a song that was inspired by the era it was created in. Explaining how much anxiety and uncertainty there is in recent years, the band have sought to capture that feeling in their sound.

Of their debut release, the band states:There isn’t any sort of specific context or set way it should be listened to. There are a lot of themes in the lyrics about isolation and loneliness, difficult break-ups, and unrequited love which lots of people will be able to relate to on some level.


“But the music is also pretty upbeat and catchy, so you can just as easily dance to it. Breaking Out is our first release of a number of tracks we have recorded with a punchier, driving sound.”


"Breaking Out", the encouraging debut release from Norwich's The Lowtones is out now and can be listened to below.
