Lowlek are an Alternative-Rock band from Cork City. Existing originally as an anonymous solo outfit, the now six-piece band have evolved hugely in recent years. With an eclectic musical style they draw on elements of synthpop, psych, rockabilly, and crooner ballads, with an emphasis on effects and lo-fi synth sounds.
They pride themselves on their unique visual style, with in house audio-visual elements playing a large part in their live set. Lowlek have made regular appearances on the Irish festival circuit, having played Castlepalooza, Knockanstockan, Vantastival, and 2018 and 2019’s Body & Soul.
Their new album ‘Unsubtle’ is out now.
Going Coastal is broadcast on Flirt Fm, BCRFM, RosFM, Wired Fm and Dublin Digital Radio. Each week a different host talks us through the music that they love.
