Lowercase People

FRESH: ‘Blooming’ – Lowercase People

Lowercase People are “Blooming”!

New Jersey based alternative rock band Lowercase People have announced their debut EP, entitled “Influx”, set for release on all major DSPs on April 3rd of this year. Their second single to the installment, “Blooming”, is available now. “Blooming” is an atmospheric ballad – highlighting the band’s love for experimentation with analog and sampling in its core production.

The band’s lead singer Noah Saunders describes the creation of “Blooming” as “a lot of deconstructing and reconstructing” along with “heavy sampling”. “It was basically taking a demo that Tommy made on his sampler, along with fitting a Rhodes keyboard melody that I wrote to it. Lots of sampling involved, lots of looping”. Lowercase People’s Influx EP contains five entirely self-produced tracks that launch the band towards a new-wave of alternative rock. With a true love for production, the EP stands out in compelling instrumentation. On July 1st of last year, the band released their first single debut, “Air”, which showcases the band’s wide range of influences between soul, reggae, and electronica.

Noah Saunders and Tommy McKelvey are the focal point of Lowercase People: as tight-knit musicians, they know exactly the kind of sound they have formed together. Acclaimed for their high-wind, energetic live performances, the New Jersey band prides themselves in resurfacing analog sounds into the modern era; combining elements of sample-based electronica and alternative rock into their songs. Noah is the lyricist of the band, supporting in vocals/keyboards; while drums/samples/programming is held down by Tommy. Together, they write music in a self-described rabbit trail: partially motivated by their ADHD, but also motivated by their mutual passion for music production. Garnering attention for their unique artistry, Lowercase People went on as tour support for Nashville-based synth-pop project PHANGS.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
