Bay Area native, Ryan Karazija, has found inspiration in Reykjavik, Iceland. It’s this inspiration that epitomizes the sound of Low Roar: fluid soundscapes paired with mellow, ethereal, and seductive harmonies.
After moving to the small Nordic community in 2010, Karazija wrote and recorded Low Roar's debut self-titled album with the help of Grammy winning producer/mixer Andrew Scheps (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Adele). After releasing the album in November 2011, Karazija recruited drummer Logi Guðmundsson and the two toured Germany, Poland, Lithuania and a myriad of other European countries, eventually joining the Iceland Airwaves and ATP festival lineups, as well as supporting indie favorite Soko.
Now with Leifur Björnsson on keys, Low Roar is releasing their second album, 0, on July 8, 2014 which features Icelandic darlings Amiina on strings and is co-produced by Andrew Scheps and Mike Lindsay (Tuung).
