Movie inspired EP release Out Now – Click here to buy
Based in Essex, The Lowriders are a four piece who are just starting to make a name for themselves in certain circles. In fact, their reputation as an up and coming band led directly to this, their latest release.
Recently released on DVD, ‘I Am Soldier’ is a military film put together by writer-director Ronnie Thompson. On the lookout for a band to soundtrack his new movie, he came across The Lowriders and commissioned them to put together some tracks to back the film – hence this new EP of the same name.
The songs were written after reading early script drafts, and contain a gritty brand of indie. In fact, the press release sums it up best:
“The result is a recognisably British, unpretentious hit of 21st Century Rock’n’Roll, bearing comparisons to acts as diverse as Kasabian, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Who.”
‘I Am Soldier’ – both the movie and the soundtrack – is out now.
