Lōwli releases new single ‘Epiphany’

April 25, 2022

Following on from her 2020 release ‘Cavalry’, Galway composer Lōwli (aka Roisin Lowry) has released a new single  ‘Epiphany’ taken from her upcoming EP ‘Otherworld’ which will be released later this year.

A neoclassical instrumental piece, ‘Epiphany’ opens with a playful piano melody accompanied by hushed, harmonised strings. This develops towards a powerful and cinematic peak, an energetic tapestry of weaving string melodies and arpeggiated piano. ‘Epiphany’ portrays hints of Olafur Arnalds, Max Richter and Agnes Obel, while maintaining Lōwli’s distinctively ethereal, enchanting sound.

Lōwli describes the composition: “This piece depicts the feeling of a new experience or circumstance in your life. Something that suddenly changes your perspective and allows you to feel clarity and understanding. To me, these moments of clarity can be fleeting but empowering, and I hoped to capture this feeling within this piece.”

 

Epiphany’ was recorded in Dublin’s Camden Studios in May 2021, supported by the MISP recording grant.
