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.
