A Q&A with THE NEW LOW (Interview)

A Q&A with THE NEW LOW (Interview)

A couple of months ago I was handed an album stream to review for Decibel Geek. The album was titled Continuance from US band The New Low. I wasn’t sure what to expect when reviewing this album as I had never heard of The New Low previously. But after listening to it a lot over the past couple of months, I say this band is a real shining light for US music. They have a new fan…
