Lowell: “I Love You Money”
Following her I Killed Sara V. EP, Toronto singer Lowell is rolling out her debut full-length album, We Loved Her Dearly, due out later this year. “I Love You Money” goes a long way in making us excited for the rest of the set, with its high-energy production, charismatic hooks, and feminist lyrics. The song is simple but put together interestingly, with layers of lo-fi vocals and hand claps over a thumping bass line. She sings anthemtic melodies about loving money and being in control from the point of view of a stripper with a languid, sarcastic tone. She comments that the song is about “being the queen of the room, enjoying taking men’s money,” but she’s not asking for any of yours.
