Think guitar-driven punk rock with serious garage and a liberal dose of bright pop melody, and you’ve some idea of what’s in store with Low Culture. The Portland foursome—OK, three out of the four have relocated here from Las Cruces, New Mexico, with the fourth reportedly on his way—had critics fired up back in 2013 with their first LP, Screens. The band—boasting members of Shang-A-Lang and Marked Men—is set to release follow-up album Places to Hide with Portland’s Dirtnap Records on September 9, but we’ve got a sneak preview of what’s in store with this brand-new track, "Evil."
Rock out the last days of summer, Portland.
Low Culture releases Places to Hide at The Know on September 8.
