Low Girl – Icarus
Low Girl have dropped an irresistible piece of alt-pop and their most ambitious single yet, Icarus. The track takes the band to a new level, cementing the exciting groundwork they have put in place over the last couple of years. Frontperson, Sarah Cosgrove explains “Icarus is a lot to do with my tendency to make myself smaller, whether that’s to avoid criticism or appease others. I actually wrote this song years ago as a slow piano ballad, and until recently it had pretty much been left behind. My right-hand man, Toby, has always been fond of the melody and words, so, with his encouragement, I started reworking it as a dream pop track.” It continues themes found across Low Girl’s music – feelings of loneliness, self-worth, mental health and the constant trials and struggles of finding one’s identity growing up. Great songwriting/sentiment on this beautiful track.
