Beautiful
Low - C'mon

There’s an angelic jangle about Low’s ‘Christmas’ EP which makes it one of those festive records you’re tempted to play all year round. That swooning simplicity has appeared at points across their career but never in more concentrated form than here on their ninth studio outing. Opener ‘Try To Sleep’ is a beguiling statement of intent, setting the tone for more personal and introspective lyrics than on previous outing, ‘Drums And Guns’. Tracks like ‘Especially Me’ and ‘You See Everything’ capture the sound which makes ‘C’mon’ such a delight, simultaneously luscious in their orchestration and muted in their delivery. Beautiful.
