Gamilaroi artist and producer Tyler Millot AKA The Terrifying Lows discussed new single Blackout

Gamilaroi artist and producer Tyler Millott AKA The Terrifying Lows joined Vanessa Morris Banksia to talk about their new single Blackout from their upcoming second LP Into the Dark Divide.

In discussing the new release, Tyler explained how it highlights an evolved sound for The Terrifying Lows, incorporating synthesisers, piano, and an 808 drum machine, different to their alternative rock sound.

Blackout follows the release of their debut self-titled LP (Nov 2021) which featured previous singles Waiting for the Sun, Everywhere You Go (There You Are), and Running Slow, which explores themes of anxiety, self-destruction and experiential distortion.

The Terrifying Lows are releasing BLACKOUT on Friday 24 February at Cherry Bar with supports from Darby and Chloe Cox.
