Whoever said don’t judge a book by its cover certainly is not alway right. Case in point, Low Key’s debut release Ship Without An Anchor. I mean, how awesome is that album artwork? Luckily for the band, and for us, they’ve got the musical chops to go with the album cover. The local quintet blends styles ranging from funk to folk and rock to dance-pop all in the span of 6 songs. It’s quite the feat for a debut release, but it shouldn’t come as any surprise since the band’s members have been hard at work on these songs since early 2012. The EP’s first single, “Natalie”, showcases the band’s pop/funk side along with some tasty harmonies, but it’s the title track and EP closer that caught our attention. It’s a swirling epic that captures the seafaring vibe from the album’s artwork, and also makes for the perfect closer for the band’s first release.
You can grab yourself a copy of the full EP for a measly, and very much worthwhile, $5 via the bandcamp link below.
