Löwin debuted last summer with a handful of singles that showed promise for the young band. Sara Houser formed the group after the amicable end of the Couch, whose blues-rock sound earned rave reviews over the course of two LPs. Löwin is just as loud, and there’s a ’70s energy crackling through the band’s riffs. The band is back with Royal Jelly, an EP that somehow splits the difference between Heart and Dinosaur Jr. The title track is fierce, but it’s given a tender reading by Houser’s expressive voice. Löwin celebrates the EP with a release show at Cheer Up Charlies on Saturday. Listen to and download “Royal Jelly” below.
