LowCityRain is loneliness and hope, distraction, ecstasy and escapism. It is a reckoning with your own inadequacy and uncertainty under the cover of the style and the dolce vita of the 1980s: the yearning for comfort, dancing alone with your eyes closed, lonely car rides through the centre of the city at night, the aloofness of the girl who doesn’t even know you…
With LowCityRain, Markus Siegenhort (Lantlôs) indulges his love for the music and aesthetics of the original Wave scene and his interpretation of the attitude of the 1980s. Musical godfathers of his project are Post-Punk and Wave bands such as The Cure, Killing Joke, or Asylum Party as well as contemporary Dreampop/Chillwave acts such as M83 or Washed Out.
Prophecy Productions are extraordinarily happy to have signed a five-album contract with LowCityRain, thus being able to attend to an artist already under contract with them on his striking of new creative paths.
Markus Siegenhort: “Up to now, I have only made great experiences with Prophecy – they really support and respect you as an artist. With Lantlôs, I have always had all the creative freedom I needed, and last but not least the crew members have not only grown dear to me, they became friends. Good promo, good impulses and ideas – Prophecy is one of the few labels that still have a profile defined by taste and passion. What more could a musician ask for?”
