Intelligent and unflappably self-assured songsmith Seb Lowe continues building on his 2022 momentum with his biggest headline show to date at Band on the Wall. 2022 was a breakthrough year for Seb, with his mini-album, The Other Half releasing on the same week that he confirmed his debut Glastonbury Festival appearance. Lowe’s leap from Tik-Tok to festival stages comes courtesy of an unimpeded connection with fans who know what he knows – that everything’s a bit sh*t and the wrong people are in charge. For anyone thinking ‘does he mean me?’ – he probably does.
Seb opened that five-song collection with Upper Class, sounding like ‘Eminem meets Bob Dylan’, he carves out the rotten soul of rewarded failure, connecting the opener with later track, Rat Sh*t in a consistent and justifiable narrative, wryly shaming the cocaine-addicted, hollowed-out souls of commerce and government dragging everybody else down to hopeless lows. Oldham-born (and living) Lowe strikes with a caustic humour and vital intellectual rigour. In There She Stood, Lowe proves that he can also tackle love and does so with a tender touch.
A standing show. On Sale 10am 9th November.
