creating delicate expanses of lustrously dreamy synthpop, lowly’s follow-up record is more vividly realised and broader in scope than their already promising debut.

Warmly received by the likes of Pitchfork and Uncut and elsewhere, the Danish quintet’s debut was a feast of dramatic dream-pop. Yet ‘Hifalutin’ is more ambitious still. With each band-member’s input emphatically felt, ‘Out Beyond’ locates a sweet spot between the synthetic and the organic in its interplay between trance-y synths and Spanish guitars. The momentous crescendo of ‘Children’ and the strange pulses of ‘ii’ showcase Lowly’s powerful, experimental range; meanwhile, the echoing piano of ‘Delicate Delegates’ finds them at their most beautiful. Fans of mammut, samaris, or Susanne sundfor’s electronic period, will be delighted by this album.
