Low Roar is Ryan Karazija, former singer of West Coast band Audrye Sessions. Originally from San Francisco, he moved to Reykjavik, Iceland, and recorded his first full-length under the new moniker. The album’s beautiful and ambient indie-folk has a haunting chilliness that seems borrowed from the frigid, isolated surroundings, while Karazija’s voice, eerily similar to Thom Yorke’s, is yearning and vulnerable. The songs are simple — adorned only with bells, accordions and occasional electronic bits — yet filled with emotional depth.
