A band a lifetime in the making, Low Island are Carlos Posada (vocals, guitar, keys), Jamie Jay (vocals, guitar, keys), Jacob Lively (bass) and Felix Higginbottom (drums, percussion). Since meeting at primary school they have been bouncing from rehearsal room to rehearsal room with each other for as long as they can remember. Low Island, the most potent incarnation of their musical brotherhood, formed just over a year ago. Practice makes perfect, and the Oxford quartet have concocted a magical sound that is all their own.
Fast forward only a year, and they’ve played sold out shows across the UK, including four in London alone, as well as being playlisted on Radio 1 and amassing over 2.5 million streams on Spotify. Add to that performances at festivals such as Reading & Leeds, Latitude and Kendal Calling, as well as support from some of the UK’s most influential DJs, and it becomes clear that 2018 is going to be a huge year for one of the country’s most exciting new bands.
