Low Roar - Nobody Else (Oliver Rado Remix) by Oliver Rado published on 2012/10/22 07:46:01 +0000 Low Roar is a response to the unknown; a vivid portrait of those life-altering moments stained with equal parts hope and melancholy. Project of Ryan Karazija, formerly of Audrye Sessions (Black Seal), Low Roar is the incarnation of change, atmosphere, and loneliness after a move from San Francisco, California to Reykjavík, Iceland. His self-titled emotive, twelve song debut chronicles the challenges of starting anew in a foreign land and is an honest depiction of the struggles to acclimate, find work, and support his family in the Icelandic winter. The albums opening lyrics "I wont wake a wealthy man someday, cause the sun dont follow me" begin to tell Low Roars story. Low Roar draws from ambient influences, especially on single, "Tonight, Tonight, Tonight", a sultry electro-washed song, recalling late 90s era Radiohead. The album takes the listener on Karazijas unsettled journey conveying emotion with yearning choruses and haunting strings in simple, yet stark, classical arrangements, alongside optimistic melodies and folk-styled songs. Combining elements of post rock with minimalist tones and sonically aligning with the change and introversion of fall, Low Roar released on November 1st, 2011, by Tonequake Records.
