Watch Out For Sara Lowes

Sara lowes







Some artists are singers. Others add songwriter to their resume. Others, like Sara Lowes, are something far beyond either simple category: aural visionaries — if you’ll pardon the sensory mixup — who are as much about scoring, production and arranging as they are about singing their own tunes. “I like how songs can turn and change throughout their course,” says Sara. “I don’t expect songs to be verse chorus, verse chorus anymore. So I don’t attempt to write like that.” No kidding. New EP All For The Dreams, just out in the U.K., is a brief prog/pop tour-de-force of instrumental chops, brash and brassy musicality and zig-zagging melodies — clever and smart — that twist and turn on a dime. Following the wordless opener “Let’s Start With An Instrumental,” a track that sounds like a mashup of five different cinematic themes and styles, comes “I Find You”, a song busy with Beatle and Steely Dan influences but remarkable it it’s own careening, free-wheeling style. We loved Lowes’ critically-praised 2011 debut Back to Creation (**** – Q) and the artful Dreams keeps the bar high and the giddy-factor even higher.
