Low Roar - "Vampire on My Fridge" (audio) (Premiere)

You can stream "Vampire on My Fridge", a song from the Iceland by way of USA group Low Roar's forthcoming album 0 exclusively on PopMatters.
 

Low Roar’s crowdfunded sophomore album 0 is set to be released in the coming weeks. The principal member behind the Low Roar name is one Ryan Karazija, who a few years ago moved to the ethereal environs of Reykjavik, Iceland, a place that clearly influences his music. “Vampire on My Fridge” has string arrangements that would make Sigur Rós proud. Add in a hypnotic, clanging percussion, and Karazija’s lilting tenor and you’ve got an enticing teaser to Low Roar’s latest creation.
  
Though it’s easy to tell a lot of complex layering went into the track, one source of the song’s inspiration is simple—and adorable. Karazija says of “Vampire on My Fridge”, “This song was named after a beautiful picture on my fridge by a six-year-old boy”.



0 is out on July 8th.
