THE LOW ANTHEM (US)
Saturday 07.07.12 - 17:30 - Pavilion
Old US flags wave over The Low Anthem’s rustic songs.
The band had a minor breakthrough with Oh My God, Charlie Darwin, which made a larger audience discover the Providence band’s richly orchestrated blend of rhythm and blues, country, blues rock and pastoral folk.
On 2011's Smart Flesh the band sounds more subdued than before. This rule has exceptions, however, for instance with the 9-11 rock hymn "Boeing 737".
The Low Anthem place themselves confidently on the mountain peaks of the American rock tradition. Their songs are full of lofty solitude, campfires and fresh mountain air.
Label: Bella Union / Cooperative
Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
