Alt-pop newcomer Low Girl has released her latest single Big Now – the title track from her forthcoming debut EP which is out next month.
With the multi-instrumentalist’s warm, expressive vocals gliding over a sparse synth line, Big Now is the follow up to last year’s debut single ICU which picked up support from BBC Introducing, BBC 6Music and Radio X.
Big Now, which again marks Low Girl out as one to watch, is an attack on apathy.
The single was born out of a frustration over climate change that had been building for years and sparked by the ‘every man for himself’ attitude Low Girl was seeing all around her at the start of the pandemic last year.
Low Girl, otherwise known as 24-year-old multi-instrumentalist Sarah Cosgrove, said: “Above all, this song is a plea to be heard and understood.
“It’s about destroying the planet for wealth that you don’t take to your grave. And it’s to remind myself to fight apathy whenever I feel it stirring inside me.”
Low Girl started writing songs at the age of 12 in her hometown of Hemel Hempstead, using the process as a coping mechanism during what she describes as “lonely teenage years”.
In the time since, she has been busily honing her craft, with a focus on writing about universal themes and emotions from a singularly feminine perspective.
Managed by the team at Esquires in Bedford, she has found her live home at the town’s venue and at the Craufurd Arms in Milton Keynes where she has played multiple early shows.
Citing artists ranging from Brockhampton to The Beatles, to King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, King Princess and Phoebe Bridgers as inspiration, the breadth of Low Girl’s influences will be clear to hear on her debut EP, without detracting from her own identity and innate song writing ability.
Low Girl’s debut EP is released next month and will feature the tracks Dead Bird Song, Lovable Maybe, Okay Someday and Sertraline as well as the new single and title track.
Big Now is out now on regular streaming platforms and will be followed by the EP of the same name on Friday, April 30.
