The First Eloi – Low Glow

· by Alexander Quiquero

Two noise and post-punk veterans collaborate with a young singer to meticulously build a diorama of pure shoegaze bliss in The Last Eloi’s debut mini-album Low Glow. Released in late 2023, Hamburg-based musicians Enid, Lorenz, and Rolf choose not to reinvent the wheel, but to drape it in a velvet fuzz; it’s really some good ol’ fashioned shoegaze! Drawing heavy influence from My Bloody Valentine and the Buzzcocks, this EP is perfectly synthesized to scratch that itch for hopeful melancholia. 

Low Glow’s the kind of album with catchy tunes I find myself humming on midnight walks back home. Guitar riffs reverberate and glow as if under the night sky, while slow tempos keep a cooling pace to build a chunky and cohesive sound of violet starbursts at twilight out the back of a moving car toward a long road to an unknown future.

Enid’s silky voice feels like being wrapped in a duvet and held tightly on a gray Sunday. No matter where you listen to Low Glow, its cosmic textures just seem to spill out and intertwine with the surroundings, radiating a hopeful bent toward tomorrow.
