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!
