We are delighted to be welcoming 'Low Girl' to The Stage Door as part of the Music Venue Trust and The National Lottery's Revive Live tour!
 
Low Girl is the work of multi-instrumentalist Sarah Cosgrove and her bandmates Toby, Tom and Brad. Described by DIY Magazine as “a peppy new pop talent”, the band released debut EP ‘Big Now’ in May 2021 and haven’t looked back since. The EP was preceded by the release of the title track, which picked up support from BBC Radio 1, Radio X and was playlisted on BBC 6Music, as well as strong support from DIY, The Line of Best Fit and Spotify to name just a few. A debut, sold out London headline show at The Lexington, BBC introducing slots at Reading & Leeds and supports with Dream Wife, Pom Poko and The Murder Capital have cemented the live sound of a band coming of age and in January, Low Girl released their sophomore EP entitled ‘So Cool’. The title single is another irresistible piece of alt-pop, with continuing the themes found across her debut EP, feelings of loneliness, self-worth, mental health and the constant trials and struggles of finding one’s identity growing up. Of ‘So Cool’, Low Girl explains… 
 
“There was a girl I liked who really knew how to switch it on and off, flirting and then recoiling. I’d end up feeling pretty disorientated, trying to maintain some sense of composure and resolve but failing miserably. I knew none of it was good for me, but my tendency to be self-destructive made it inevitable.” The single went onto gain BBC Introducing Radio 1 track of the week in April, alongside major Spotify support, featuring on no less than seven editorial playlists including NMF. Upon returning from SXSW in March, the band headed straight back into the studio to record a yet untitled third EP, which will feature prominently as they head out on their Revive Live tour. Sarah explains… “Revive Live is incredibly important and we are super honoured and excited to be involved. Grassroots venues are the lifeblood of the industry and in quieter periods like festival season, to have an initiative that assists putting artists into spaces can only be a good thing. We have to protect these venues and Music Venue Trust are helping to do so. Without GMV’s, we’re very aware that we wouldn’t have the opportunity to develop and we can’t wait to visit new areas, test new songs and spread the Low Girl word.” Citing artists ranging from Brockhampton to The Beatles, to King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, King Princess and Phoebe Bridgers as inspiration, the breadth of Low Girls’ influences are clear to hear but never detracts from her own unique identity and innate song writing ability. 2022 could just well be their year…
