Our friends over at INDIGENOUS are due major kudos for this Lovely Hearts Club addition. Ryan Karazija is the man behind Low Roar, who just released his debut, self-titled album this November. What perfect timing of this release, as it’s so nice to have something a bit sad to put in the headphones on these cold, short days of winter. Ryan moved from San Francisco to Iceland and began writing this album as he found himself in a state of loneliness struggling to provide for his family in a foreign land. Anyone who as ever picked up and left a stable life in hopes of finding something new/better/different or just to escape from their past knows this feeling of despair, fear of the unknown, and hope of what’s to come.
The brand spanking new video for “Give Up”, (recently premiered via Prefix) depicts this image of self-reflection so beautifully and raw that it might just bring a tear to your eye. It’s nice to be reminded that we are capable of feeling the melancholy brought on by Low Roar, and for that we are thankful. So take a seat or lay down in your room with the lights dimmed and stream “Tonight, Tonight, Tonight”. Then head to iTunes and pick up the whole album, you won’t regret it!
