Rising alternative R&B artist Low.bō recently dropped off his gritty new offering, “Down On My Luck.” Produced by Ben Mulade, the new single combines a skulking bass line, shimmering chords, and sublime vocal layering to create a truly captivating track. With this soulful single, Low.bō expresses his frustration with the capitalist society that restricts our ability to live freely, in his own words:
“I work a 6-6 job that I don’t enjoy working because of not having the time to explore other outlets of my life such as romance or simple pleasure. Because of being stuck at a job and being caught up in the cycle of capitalism and survival, “Down On My Luck” became the manifestation of that. Fuck a 9-5, fuck a catch-22, and live your life as free as you can.”
The new single is a follow-up to his 2022 release “Venus,” which was an ode to Low.bō’s home, the bonds he’s made, and the idea of being loved but still feeling hesitant about it. The contrast between the two singles showcases Low.bō’s versatility as an artist and the different emotions he can evoke through his music. “Down On My Luck” is a powerful statement on the struggles of living in a capitalist society, while “Venus” is a more intimate and personal reflection on relationships and home. Both tracks showcase Low.bō’s unique style and his ability to connect with listeners through his music.
