On 2018’s Double Negative, Low sounded broken, distorted, distant. Their music—always centered on the vocals of Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker, always beautiful, always in the process of reinvention—seemed to glitch and warp just as you started sinking in, a signal growing weaker the closer you approached. The group’s latest single, “Days Like These,” again produced by BJ Burton, continues this trend. When the full arrangement enters about 80 seconds into the song, the sound that emerges is a static, alien pulse, the instruments so blurred that it’s hard to tell what they started life as.
