"Low Duo's songs are all killer no filler"
Tom Robinson, BBC Fresh on the Net (Twitter)
"Keeps up a consistently brilliant track record"
BBC Radio Sheffield Introducing
"Short and sweet, it's great"
Gill Mills, Amazing Radio, New Music Matters
"Have a listen and be inspired, they really do have an innate and unusual ability to write raw emotion and yet inject hope, creating something quite enriching"
"It’s hard to imagine the prolific Low Duo getting any better, but the new songs they play tonight demonstrate a very exciting direction. Dark, discordant and fucked up, they’re reminiscent of the paranoia of Radiohead’s Amnesiac. Experimenting with spoken word on ‘Weather Send Me Home’, Leigh’s delivery has a casual panache and on If I Could Could Have Total Control, they outdo The National for beautifully mournful melody. Leigh continues to stretch his voice, and his melodies are becoming more adventurous and distinctive with each new record. He twists and weaves in and out of Adam’s precise and punctured guitar playing, and yet again, they thrill me. There are few bands who evoke such terrifying beauty while leaving you with an unsettling sense of foreboding."
Pete David, Sloucher
"Just one guitar and one vocal. The outcome is phenomenal. One moment it’s raw anger, the next it’s gentle and melodic. But it is always passionate."
"[Weather Send Me Home] Just guitar and voice, yet creating a moody, edgy, blistering, half-spoken, half-sung track; Radiohead meets Whipping Boy. Those guitar parts are just phenomenal – each chord change unexpected, but fitting seamlessly together and the falsetto chorus is as pretty as the lyrics are engaging.40/43"

"Tonight I give you 6 of the best from the Sheffield, England underground - Low Duo (Going Underground #13)"

"Single Of The Week - Weather Send Me Home - Low Duo
This wonderful release from Sheffield pair Low Duo combines low droning guitars with an almost subtly aggressive spoken word vocal, resulting in a sound that compels the listener to pay attention to every word, every note and every second of this track. The mood of this track truly captures the mood of the subject matter, a man obsessed with finding out if his lover is having an affair. Gritty, angry and brilliant."

"Low Duo, brought their own brand of warped, ever so slightly sinister balladry to a well attended Gatsby here in Sheffield. Togged up in their trademark vintage suits, Low Duo proceeded to enthrall and engage with their audience Whether it’s autobiographical or not, it’s brutal, compelling stuff. EP and set opener Who? utilities the narrative style already referred to over a bass riff that brings to mind The Cure, while If I Could Have Total Control ranges from soaring falsetto to a searing, angry snarl. The highlight for me was the aforementioned Weather Take Me Home, the lead track on the EP. Suffice to say my copy of the EP has been on heavy rotation since. "
Steve Barnes, Backseat Mafia
"I was so struck by the integrity of Adam and Leigh Greenwood (the two brothers that form Low Duo), that I felt I wanted to get this across to readers. These guys are so authentic and in this day and age and in the current industry it’s not a quality you see enough of. I wanted to put this out there because they were so lovely and helpful and I feel that it’s important to get their message across. Their music is fantastic and is a rare example of truly unadulterated talent. I advise anyone reading this to look them up."
Shirin Fahri, A Taster of Me blog
"[Weather Send Me Home] it's an excellent track"
"Session's sounding great!"
Forge Radio 'The Selector'
"The two brothers weave vivid and intense stories through Leigh Greenwood's powerful imagery, told with gripping vocals enhanced by Adam's moody, minimal guitar playing. Low Duo's talent for creating an atmosphere that keeps you on the edge of your seat, while ‘Keys Inside The Door’ is one chapter in the bigger tale that is their new EP, Everything Was Blurred."
Phoebe Seymour, Now Then
"Oh Yes! Most Pleasant"
Simon Edwards, 6 Towns Radio
"Barebones garage and minimalist guitar post-punk" [Hollow Eyes 'track of the day']
"EP of the Week"
"Adam uses his electric and acoustic guitars in interesting and inventive ways to elicit the necessary mood and emotion. Leigh then uses his impressive vocal range to tell his tales [Everything Was Blurred] sees them exploring uncharted territory."
