Lower Dens

The Competition

    Four years since their critically acclaimed album, ‘Escape From Evil’, Lower Dens announce their newest creation - ‘The Competition’ - released on Domino’s Ribbon Music imprint.

    ‘The Competition’ is a pop album with a concept both emotionally and politically urgent. By design, competition is the driving force of modern capitalism and the title is lead singer and songwriter Jana Hunter’s (pronouns: they/them, him/his) term for a socio-psychological phenomenon this generates, a kind of psychosis that accelerates our insecurities and anxieties to the point of total overload, corroding our intimacies, our communities and our senses of self.

    Lower Dens

    Escape From Evil

      Lower Dens are Jana Hunter (vocals, guitar), Will Adams (guitar), Geoff Graham (bass, vocals) and Nate Nelson (drums). On ‘Escape From Evil’, Lower Dens’ Jana Hunter emerges, cerebral and hot-blooded, rash and incorruptible and, crucially, possessing of a loud, clear voice. The album sees Hunter stepping up and taking centre stage and emboldening every aspect of the band.

      ‘Escape From Evil’ is a cinematic, tonally rich work. The sounds are clean and warm. The pulse of the album is strong. Melodies are potent and songs are physical. Lyrics are direct, frank confrontations with life’s common crises. The album title is brazen and, along with the grimly funny title of lead single, ‘To Die In L.A.’, almost theatrical.

      The album was produced by Hunter and co-produced and mixed by Chris Coady (Beach House, Cass McCombs). Other production elements came from Ariel Rechtshaid (Sky Ferreira, Vampire Weekend) and Lower Dens’ Walker Teret. Additional recording and production was done in Dallas, TX with John Congleton (St. Vincent, The Walkmen).
