A striking classical composition with serialist overtones, Low Island’s “Tomorrow” perfectly captures an ever-present desire for the next day.
If you listen to any of Low Island’s back catalogue you would be forgiven for expecting pretty middle of the road electronic pop music, slightly tepid but hearts all in the right place. So, imagine one's surprise when their latest offering is a soaring piano led piece that sits somewhere between Vaughan Williams and Philip Glass.
Serialism and atonality are the antithesis of pop music because they do not fall within its limited boundaries. What is interesting about Low Island’s interpretation is that their use of timbre is quite simplistic whilst the chordal changes are more complex. This combination of simplicity and complexity ultimately bridges the gap between the confines of popular music and boundless opportunity of the avant-garde.
