Low Sun just released their first single, “Into Sun”. The track comes ahead of a split they are a part of called Human Sun with Toronto band HUMANITIES - out July 13, 2017.
"Lyrically on “Into Sun” we wanted to experiment with how we could dissect and ultimately expand on the seemingly mundane experiences people tend to let pass them by. Mostly, we were curious as to what separates an everyday, or random observation, with one that is powerfully religious in its essence. Sometimes we are unaware that attention and perception are the only things that separate the two."
The Human Sun split contains their first two songs which serve as an intro to their band. Their contributions to the release are also pieces of their upcoming full length which they plan to release this fall.

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’
NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
