Lowell Drops 'The Bells' (dd elle remix), Debut LP Out 9/16 via Arts & Crafts
Lowell is like dynamite: ferocious, unrelenting, and determined - but not only when it comes to her music. Writing each song to empower not only herself, but also her listeners -- to challenge gender conventions and inspire freedom from social limitations. Lowell's refreshingly rebellious approach is what stands her unique brand of sophisticated synth-infused pop apart from the rest. She brilliantly blends deliriously catchy melodies and feminist punk gender politics on her debut full-length record We Loved Her Dearly, set for release September 16 via Arts & Crafts!
To announce We Loved Hear Dearly, Lowell revealed the track "I Love You Money," with The New York Times' T Magazine, which features the rebellious singer's signature yelps and howls. Today, we unleash the dd elle remix of "The Bells," where the mysterious producer takes the shimmering synths and hook-laden chorus of the original to minimalistic lows and infectious highs.
In addition to writing openly about topics like sexual abuse, rape, abortion, and women's rights, Lowell boldly addresses the lack of LGBTQ rights in our society - as heard in the celebratory track "LGBT". Taking a cue from the feminist-punk contemporaries that her messaging has often been compared to (Grimes, Beth Ditto), Lowell's brand of pop conveys the urgency of her subject matter, but her melodies keep songs accessible, optimistic and fun.
