Quick Shots #14: Low Island

/ How are you holding up during these crazy times with all the Covid restrictions?
/ Carlos, Low Island:
We are holding up ok! It’s not the easiest time to be a musician, but we locked down in a house in the middle of nowhere in rural France so we could keep on making music together. We’re glad we did – we’ve managed to stay afloat and are trying to be as resourceful as we can. We’ve set up our own label called ‘Emotional Interference’, we’re filming live videos to give people the opportunity to see the new material ‘live’ even though we can’t tour, and we’re working on loads of collaborations remotely with some incredible visual artists. None of this is ideal, but we’re working as hard as we can to make the best of a bad situation.

/ What is your favourite pizza topping?
/ Carlos, Low Island:
When I was eating meat, nduja. Now, mushrooms. I really miss the nduja.

/ What does the rest of the year hold for you? Any projects coming up?
/ Carlos, Low Island:
So many new and exciting things that we can’t wait to share with everyone! More music, music videos, live videos, collaborations with other artists, both musical and visual, and still crossing our fingers that we’ll be able to play live in front of actual people in 2021. We took on self-management this year, and also self produce and self release all of our own music – it’s more work than we’ve ever had to do before, but we’ve never felt more excited about what we are making. We feel incredibly lucky to still be making music – we hope that the new songs move people in some way and provide some kind of tonic for the total shitshow that has been 2020.
