Lower Cut formed in the spring of 2009, when Panos Gounas and Vangelis Stavroulakis decided to kick off a project so they could express their common musical influences. Soon enough Yannis Efthymiou, Alexandros Darmis and Vasilis Mpaldos were added to the group, which took its final form in the autumn of 2011 with the addition of Irene Argyri in the vocals. The band now consists of: Irene Argyri (vocals), Alexandros Darmis (synths, programming), Yannis Efthymiou (bass, programming), Vasilis Mpaldos (drums), Vangelis Stavroulakis (guitars).
From day one they started working on their material and tried to create their own sound which hovers over the soundscapes of the 90’s British shoegaze scene and the post-punk movement. Lower Cut’s music can be described as a mixture of ethereal vocal lines and synthesizers, alongside loud guitars and rhythm section, combining pop melodies with harsh outbreaks.
They have until now, released two EPs, “Lower Cut” in February of 2011, “3.3” in April of 2012, both self-released and a digital single, “(some random summer) Rain” in July of 2014 (Puzzlemusik label).
Their official debut album, named “Off my Head”, produced by Alex Bolpasis, is going to hit the shelves on October 22, 2014, released by Puzzlemusik label.
