About Low Roar
Low Roar is the musical vision of Ryan Karazija. Born in the Bay Area, he spent his formative years playing in bands around Northern California before hopping a plane to Iceland where he relocated in 2010. That year, he recorded Low Roar’s self-titled debut in his Reykjavik kitchen. Quietly building buzz, he cut the critically acclaimed follow-up, 0, in a converted garage during 2014 before gracing the stages of Eurosonic, Airwaves France, The Great Escape, Iceland Airwaves and beyond. The band’s discography features heavily in the 2019 video game Death Stranding following a collaboration with video game designer Hideo Kojima, after Kojima chanced upon their music while in a CD shop in Reykjavík. Karazija spent most of 2016 traveling to Iceland, Sweden, Poland and Mexico before settling in Warsaw. During this time, he carefully assembled what would become his third full-length record, Once In A Long Long While. In the midst of his travels, he entered a London studio with longtime collaborator Mike Lindsay. Recording wrapped in Wales in the studio of producer/mixer Andrew Scheps. Ultimately, Once In A Long Long While reflects Low Roar at Ryan’s rawest. At the end of 2019 Low Roar shared the album Ross with their fans.
