The Low Countries Short Info

'indie-folk at its best...' Folk Radio UK

'They make literate, clever music that makes Belle and Sebastian look like a bunch of thugs' Popshifter

‘this is indie-folk music from the heart and I say give it a go’ Johnno Casson, Fresh On The Net

The Low Countries, until 2013 an indie-folk duo, are now resurrected as a five piece band. They're currently recording a 6-track EP (out early 2016) and release a spanking new single 'Sun Street (2015)' on the 26th of September 2015. A kind of comeback for Nigel and his songs, assisted by a band of great musicians, people and friends.
The band came together to help Nigel and Els perform at the launch of their final album 'The Invisible Ray' (2013). This proved to be so enjoyable they found they couldn't stop. Nigel, feeling 'songed out' and a bit mental at the time, was then persuaded by the rest of the band to enter the studio and record six of the best. A last hurrah that sounds amazing...

Nigel and Els formed the Low Countries in 2008 and they've released 8 or so albums and other sundry songs, often to immense (is that the right word?) critical acclaim - BBC6 Music airplay, BBC Radio sessions, great reviews.

Nigel’s songs have been played on BBC Radio 6, BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio Lancashire, Unpeeled.net, Folk Radio UK, Dandelion Radio, Studio Brussels, Radio Centraal and many others.
