Low: Disappearing: Official Video

Somewhere along the way, I saw Low at Sudsy Malone’s Laundromat in Clifton and I thought it was the coolest experience ever.  Sudsy Malone’s is not around anymore, and I could not even begin to tell you what it has been replaced with other than a chain restaurant.  Low is still around and that is a good thing judging by their new single “Disappearing” which incidentally is what they are not doing.  Check it out below. 

HEY WHAT, the astonishing new Low album, will be released worldwide on September 10th, 2021 on Sub Pop Records. On the heels of their latest single,  “Days Like These”, the group has shared a breathtaking video for their song “Disappearing.” Multi-disciplinary artist Dorian Wood directed the group’s new video, and had this to say about making the video, “I am incredibly thrilled to have created this video for Low. I’ve been such a fan for years. I was inspired to offer a personal glimpse of what I’d been up to during the pandemic year. I’ve been doing art modeling on the side for years, mostly for art schools. Once the schools physically shut down due to Covid, I was invited to pose for dozens of virtual classes. I borrowed a friend’s empty guest room and twice a week I would set up my laptop and lights and pose for three hours at a time. During these long stretches of time, I’d lose myself in thought while delivering poses that best showcased all this fat brown beauty. In my mind, I traveled to places and memories, and in the case of “Disappearing”, I not only visited the ocean in my mind, I became it. Even at its most empowering and meditative, a modeling session was often a reminder of how lonely one can feel when the other humans in the room immediately vanish once the laptop shuts down. And still, a semblance of hope always lingered. We shot the video at Human Resources, a performance space in L.A. which also served as a creative sanctuary for me during the pandemic year. There’s a lot of ‘coming home’ love in this video. I’m honored to be able to share this love.”

Low have announced two album release shows on September 10th and 11th at Square Lake, outside the twin cities in their home state of Minnesota. The group has invited a diverse group of artists to join them including Joe Rainey Sr., Gaelynn Lea, and Lord Friday the 13th. These shows are in addition to the previously announced 30-date world tour beginning in March 2022, with UK and European dates to follow in May. See below for a full list of shows.
