Lowertown release new EP ‘Honeycomb, Bedbug’

It’s the Atlanta duo’s first release with Dirty Hit!

Lo-fi indie lovelies Lowertown - aka Olivia Osby and Avsha Weinberg -are sharing their brand new EP ‘Honeycomb, Bedbug’ today, marking their first release with Dirty Hit!

Speaking about their new EP, Olivia says, “’Honeycomb, Bedbug’ was written during a point of extreme change and development in both of our lives. Avsha and I were nearing the end of high school and this forced us to heavily contemplate our futures. We were at the age where the line starts to blur between if we were now to be considered adults or still teenagers.”

“Half of the songs in ‘Honeycomb, Bedbug’ were written pre-Coronavirus, and half were written post-Coronavirus outbreak, so the environmental anxiety and isolation of that time is reflected in the lyrics and in the tone of some of the songs,” she continues. “Important parts of my life were rapidly changing as I was maturing and many questions began to rise for me in the process. I contemplated the growing complexity of my relationships with friends and family, the higher education system in America, how my gender affects the way people perceive and treat me, and how I should be spending the remaining valuable years of my youth. These songs weren’t written to answer the questions and ideas I had been relentlessly mulling over this past year, but were created to aid in the process of considering these difficult topics. These songs capture a growing awareness and understanding of the reality of the world around me, and I hope to other people my age, it can be a reassurance that you don’t need to have the answers right now. At 19, I’m definitely not supposed to have figured most of these things yet, but I believe at this age, engaging with the process of considering the nature of things around you is extremely important.”
