December 9, 2022 BY Jason Currell
Today, Massachusetts-based music producer Towerz announces his next album, entitled standing hills. The 11-track project will arrive at digital retailers on January 20, 2023, and chronicles how isolation helped Towerz find peace with his personal struggles.
“I’ve moved 18 times in my life,” shares Towerz. “For some reason not one of those places had mountains. So I’ve always been in awe of mountains. The last year has been quite a rough one. I always find solace in the peace and isolation of the mountains…standing hills is about my time spent traveling through the various mountainous areas I’ve been in over the last year.”
Today, Towerz shares his latest single, entitled “caverns.” As the title hints at, the song was inspired by Newfoundland’s seaside caverns, which are depicted in the cover art.
“This song is meant to evoke the feeling of being in a cave,” he shares, “The meandering plucks and smooth chords help emphasize that feeling.”
Since his 2020 debut EP Until Tomorrow, Towerz has amassed over 200 million Spotify streams, releasing projects such as A Bridge Between (with hi jude), At Long Last (with edelwize) and his latest offering Solemn. He’s received strong playlist support from Lofi Girl, including their flagship “beats to relax/study to” playlist (6.7M likes, stream HERE), as well as Spotify’s “lush lofi” editorial (995K likes, stream HERE).
