Great art has always incubated in human isolation. Low Roar - the musical vision of Ryan Karazija - alchemises those moments of solitude into tunes of glacial modern pop anthems. He’s a Californian artist living in Warsaw, recording in the United Kingdom and constantly touring around the world. Ryan has made a habit of documenting his life in honest songs that can swell your spirit or break your heart at any given time.
His fourth studio album ross. was released on November 8th 2019. ross. perfectly honours the core sonic ideals at the heart of Low Roar. Expansive atmospherics and a soft neon pulse of electronic beats illuminate the sonic firmament just enough to reveal the vast space through which Low Roar’s minimalist arrangements and acoustic textures move. As a songwriter, Karazija has always understood that far from being antithetical to universality, honouring your personal experiences as unflinchingly as you can, is intrinsic to it.
