Waterparks Return With New Single, Lowkey As Hell
After breaking the internet by chopping off his signature green haircut, Awsten Knight and Waterparks are back with a brand-new single, Lowkey As Hell.
The Texan trio – completed by drummer Otto Wood and guitarist Geoff Wigington – have also announced that they’ve signed to 300 Entertainment, with the frontman enthusing: “Over the years, we’ve gotten better at switching it up. By making moves like getting with 300 – an almost exclusively hip-hop oriented label – and not forfeiting our guitars once we signed the deal, I think we’re actually taking steps to help rock. Either way, fuck genres and expectations. There’s no reason to be limited.”
Of Lowkey As Hell, meanwhile, Awsten explains: “The song is a recap of the last year or so. It really describes what’s been going on and who I am. When I’m onstage, I’m a forward-facing, extroverted presence. At the same time, I’m also the biggest hermit ever. I just like to stay in, ignore my phone a lot, and write. I’m naturally reserved in my day-to-day life. The juxtaposition of loud materialism versus private emotion in that opening line really encapsulates the feeling I wanted to get across in the rest of the song.”
