Approved: Lowell

CMU Approved

Lowell

While working with producer Martin Terefe on her forthcoming debut mini-album, ‘If You Can, Solve This Jumble’, Canadian singer Lowell ended up appearing on his band Apparatjik‘s second long player, ‘Square Peg In A Round Hole’, which was released earlier this year.

Returning the favour, Apparatjik then came back to the studio to play on her album. And when the band consists of Grammy award winner Terefe, A-ha’s Magne F, Coldplay’s Guy Berrymen and Mew’s Jonas Bjerre, that’s the sort of endorsement most new artists can only dream of.

Not that Lowell really needs their endorsement, as the first song from her mini-album, ‘Shake Him Off’, shows. Their performance on the track certainly makes for a strong recording, but at its heart is a great song.

‘Shake Him Off’ is available as a free download here  – and you can watch the video here:
