Following the release of their debut album Highlights earlier this year, British alt-pop trio Flawes announce Lowlights – an EP of four songs taken from the album, and stripped back to their rawest form. The EP is scheduled to be released via Red Bull Records on Wednesday, May 13.
The band has also unveiled a video of the Lowlights version of one of their most anthemic songs, “Look No Further”, the intimate recording revealing the intricacies and emotion of the track.

Flawes performed as part of the inaugural Red Bull Records Virtual Festival last weekend, joining labelmates Beartooth and The Aces among others. Their lockdown-filmed performance can be re-streamed here.
Known for their polished production, and huge awe-inspiring live performances, Lowlights gives the listener an opportunity to get to know the band on a much deeper level. In addition, undeterred by lockdown, the band has been recording and releasing a series of impressive ‘Isolation Sessions’, with each member performing remotely from their own home. Watch the sessions on their YouTube channel here.
“‘Lowlights’ is a selection of songs from our debut album that have been stripped right down to their bare bones. We love to create a huge wall of sound when playing live, so to mix things up we decided to challenge ourselves and take the complete opposite approach,” explain the band. “The songs are so exposed, there’s almost nowhere to hide. ‘Don’t Count Me Out’ in particular is literally just a piano and vocal, taking the song right back to where it started life.”
The band recorded the EP at Red Bull Studios in London, and some of the performances were recorded and left totally live for the final EP.
