The DownLo: Low Roar

(DownLo is quickfire interview series by Jarrett Edmund. Bands are cornered after their performances and forced to answer the hardhitting questions all in under a minute)

Welcome to the very first iteration of DownLo! Today we are featuring Low Roar, who are currently touring in support of their latest release, Once in a Long, Long While. We caught up with vocalist and brainchild Ryan Karazija after the set:

TNLF: You’ve been recording in Iceland, what other ‘lands’ would you like to record in?

RK: Actually for this new album I recorded in California, London, Wales and Poland.. and Mexico, so we covered a lot

TNLF: This is your third album, is the third time the charm?

RK: I’m not sure about that yet–I feel really good about it. That’s the most important for me. I’m really happy with the album, and I didn’t write it for anybody else but me so

TNLF: What’s going to kill us first, anti-biotics or nuclear war?

RK: Ah shit… I don’t know, I don’t know! *laughs*
