Title: Salt Doll Went To Measure The Depths Of The Sea

The Low Anthem would beckon you into the salty sea. Formed in 2007 by Ben Knox Miller and Jeff Prystowsky, The Low Anthem grew from DIY ethos to semiaccidental success. Having originally self-released "What The Crow Brings" and "Oh My God, Charlie Darwin", the group signed with Nonesuch, toured the world, and were reluctantly lumped in with the so-called "folk revival". But night after night of performing their early material was not ultimately where they wanted to land: "The moment was losing it's mystery. We were scared of becoming robots." In the winter of 2012, the group returned to their hometown of Providence, RI, with an eye toward re-exploring their musical understanding. In a newly restored vaudeville theater-studio, The Low Anthem found their direction. The band began recording in increasingly experimental and meticulous ways, resulting in the complexly experimental Eyeland. The album's release was tragically cut short after four shows due to a crippling car accident, leaving the band hospitalized and the tour cancelled. Through this journey, The Low Anthem have boiled down their musical ideals and found their true voice. The Salt Doll Went To Measure The Depth Of The Sea is 12 short songs, at once fragile, nuanced, honest, and delicately purposeful.
