Description

Ashes on CD

With a haunting sound and ominously reverb drenched melodies, Lower Heaven live up to their name which they've taken from an Echo and the Bunnymen lyric. Absorbing and reinterpreting influences like My Bloody Valentine, Hawkwind, and the Jesus and Mary Chain, the band has been able to defy constraints of genre classification by keeping the song writing, arrangement, instrumentation, and production of their work unconventional and innovative. Having finely tuned a sound that is very much their own, Lower Heaven have been turning the heads of their local peers, building a strong fan base, and creating a word of mouth buzz in Los Angeles for the past year. Currently they are finishing their first full-length recording with friend and producer Rob Campanella along with Rick Parker mixing and mastering the final cuts. The final result is nothing short of extraordinary and will be the stepping stone for the next installment of what the band is approaching. The band recently played the 'Clean Air, Clear Stars' benefit in Joshua Tree, sharing the stage with Dead Meadow as well as others in a perfect setting ...a distant desert outside Los Angeles. Marcos Chloca starts strumming his autoharp, introducing a new dimension to this genre and typically the first thing you will notice about this band. Christina Parks' driving bass lines are alongside as Stephen Swesey begins rhythmically shadowing her. Tommy Danbury's electric guitar swells and the song dives into what feels like a lucid dream. Marcos' lyrics start to tell what seems to be a bitter tale of pain; "Bring me down or lift me up / Clean me up inside / I have seen the ghost of me / I've been sick and dry". Whichever the case may be, these dark themes of lost love, despair, and disarray are perfectly suited to fit Lower Heaven's live enigma. Having shared the stage with such bands as Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Black Angels and Darker my Love, Lower Heaven's members (whose musical backgrounds currently include; Magic Mirror, Spindrift, and Tristeza) have been steadily creating a buzz for themselves in the rapid current which is the Los Angeles art/music scene.
