Slowcore legends, Low, share the second single from their forthcoming album; the follow-up to 2018’s Double Negative, HEY WHAT, which is due for release on September 10 via Sub Pop.
Disappearing follows on from HEY WHAT‘s lead single, Days Like These.
You can watch the video for Disappearing below.
Continuing their spate of collaborations, firstly with Lincolnshire-born artist, Peter Liversidge, who is responsible for the artwork from Ones and Sixes, Double Negative, and HEY WHAT, Low enlisted multi-disciplinary artist, Dorian Wood, to create the video for Disappearing.
Speaking of the video, Wood comments:
“I’ve been doing art modelling on the side for years, mostly for art schools. Once the schools physically shut down due to Covid, I was invited to pose for dozens of virtual classes. I borrowed a friend’s empty guest room and twice a week I would set up my laptop and lights and pose for three hours at a time. During these long stretches of time, I’d lose myself in thought while delivering poses that best showcased all this fat brown beauty. In my mind, I travelled to places and memories, and in the case of Disappearing, I not only visited the ocean in my mind, I became it.
“Even at its most empowering and meditative, a modelling session was often a reminder of how lonely one can feel when the other humans in the room immediately vanish once the laptop shuts down. And still, a semblance of hope always lingered. We shot the video at Human Resources, a performance space in L.A. which also served as a creative sanctuary for me during the pandemic year. There’s a lot of ‘coming home’ love in this video. I’m honoured to be able to share this love.”
