An electro-pop odyssey that evokes smoky clubs, neon-lit night drives, and a sweeping air of intangible mystery.

The latest release from Lower Dens, 'The Competition', is a pop album with a concept both emotionally and politically urgent, dealing with modern capitalism and its psychotic effects. Its 11 songs range in scope from the personal to the political, but overall express an epiphany: you need radical and unquestioning compassion for yourself if you’re to reimagine what society could be.
