Low Share Video for “Poor Sucker”

Low released a new album, Double Negative, last month via Sub Pop. It was our Album of the Week. Now they have shared a video for "Poor Sucker." Karlos Rene Ayala directed the clip, which features the band's Alan Sparhawk getting his face painted while the camera is one static position. The image cuts between different face paint patterns to the music. Watch it below, followed by the band's upcoming tour dates.

Read our recent My First Concert article with Low, where Alan Sparhawk discussed the first concert he ever attended.

Pick up Under the Radar's current print issue (Issue 64) to read our exclusive interview with Low on Double Negative.

When the album was announced they shared videos for three new songs, "Quorum," "Dancing and Blood," and "Fly" (shared as one complete 14-minute piece, a triptych, as well as separately). The songs all made our Songs of the Week list. Then they shared the album's closing track, "Disarray" (which was #2 on our Songs of the Week list). Then NPR streamed the whole album a week early. Then they shared a video for "Rome (Always in the Dark)" (which was #3 on our Songs of the Week list).

Double Negative is the follow-up to 2015's Ones and Sixes. A previous press release described Double Negative as Low's "most brazen, abrasive (and, paradoxically, most empowering) album." Low (Alan Sparhawk, Mimi Parker, and bassist Steve Garrington) recorded the album at Justin Vernon's April Base studio in Eau Claire, Wisconsin (where they recorded Ones and Sixes) with producer B.J. Burton (Bon Iver, Lizzo, James Blake, and Francis and the Lights). The press release said the band "knew they wanted to go further with Burton and his palette of sounds: they wanted to see what someone who is, as Sparhawk puts it, 'a hip-hop guy' could truly do with their music."
