Lower Dens: 2016

Baltimore based Lower Dens, led by singer songwriter Jana Hunter, began in 2010. The band's sound has been described as psychedelic with swirling ambiance. However, their latest album, Escape From Evil, sees the band exploring more concise pop structures. The songs deal with weighty issues but they are packaged with melodies that you can dance to.
The band stopped WFUV to perform some of their music and I talked with Jana Hunter about writing for the album and for the music website, Pitchfork.
We’ll hear that session and conversation during this episode of FUV Live.
