The Low Anthem is an American indie folk band from Providence, Rhode Island, formed in 2006. The band consists of Ben Knox Miller (vocals, guitar), Jeff Prystowsky (drums, etc.), Bryan Minto (guitar, etc.) and Florence Wallis (vocals, violin).
Founded by duo Ben Knox Miller and Jeff Prystowsky, The Low Anthem recorded and self-released two studio albums, The Low Anthem (2006) and What The Crow Brings (2007), before the arrival of vocalist and clarinetist Jocie Adams in 2007. In 2008, the band released its third studio album, Oh My God, Charlie Darwin, and increased its fanbase significantly with the album’s re-release on Nonesuch Records and Bella Union.
In a message to fans in June 2013 during the recording of their fifth studio album, the band announced that Jocie Adams was departing The Low Anthem to focus on her new project, Arc Iris.
The Low Anthem just returned from an international tour in support of their newest album ‘Eyeland’. The most creative and innovative album yet. Confusing some and captivating most.
“Eyeland is an elegant concept album whose title track is a kind of metaphor for consciousness — specifically, the enchanted and terrifying time in childhood when illusion and reality aren’t yet cleaved. The Low Anthem conjures that world with music that plays with the senses even as it philosophizes about them…..The band has channeled the weird old veins of The Columbus in the record’s rich soundscapes.” – NPR
