About Löwin ?
Löwin is fresh off the release of their second full-length album, Heavy as the Sun. The record marks a rebirth in sound for the Austin-based quartet. While Royal Jelly (2013) asserted the band as a member of the Austin rock scene, Heavy as the Sun emerges with a more shimmery pop aesthetic on intro tracks “Sake” and “Maybe It’s Over.” Songwriter/singer Sara Houser switches from guitar to keyboards (her primary instrument) to create a uniformly synth centered record. “I wanted the focus of this record to be more lyrically and melodically driven and for me those ideas come the most naturally when I’m playing piano,” explains Houser.

Listen to Heavy as the Sun ?

Heavy as the Sun was recorded in Austin, TX with the help of Stuart Sikes (Big Orange), Carey McGraw (Modern Medicine), Adam Mason and mastered by Max Lorenzen.
