Low - 'Ones And Sixes'

7/10

Having made a name for themselves over the last 20 years as an incredibly quiet and minimally-produced band, Low are continuing to improve with every release they make. Their 2013 album 'The Invisible Way' become their most commercial successful album to date and now with their eleventh studio full-length 'Ones And Sixes' about to hit the shelves, it definitely looks like the band have finally found their happy medium.

For years, Low had almost been seen as a gimmick. Allegedly too quiet to be heard on radio, the band's ultra-soft playing style became their biggest asset as it forced listeners to really sit down and focus on their music. Those days seem long gone as 'Ones And Sixes' shows a bit more volume than before, but still has that lighter touch as each track sounds like it is being played with the highest precision for the best delivery.

While it's clear that Low have clearly moved their sound on from their origins, this new direction certainly seems to suit them well. The music is as professional as ever and shows that even after 20 years in the business, a band can grow happily on the peripheries of the British music scene and still produce high quality records.
