Royal Festival Hall, London – 03/04/2012

I consider myself a relative newcomer to Low, having seen them only once before. I saw them at Primavera Sound in Barcelona two years ago performing one of their albums, ‘The Great Destroyer’ in its entirety. For someone who had never heard their music before it was something of a revelation. Low have long been termed with the genre ‘slow-core’ on account of the speed on their tracks, their minimal arrangements, and downbeat lyrics – which, given the tension this creates, makes for an almost religious experience.
