[Premiere] High Rule – Lowkey [Download MP3 + Lyrics]

posted by: Lydia New Music Daily

If you haven’t heard of High Rule yet, it’s time you familiarize yourself. We’re living in a time when artists need to do whatever they can to make themselves stand out. The landscape is crowded and competitive, so any unique spin helps groups gain recognition and familiarity. High Rule found their niche in blending harmonious pop vibes with electronic and hip hop.

The duo is made up of Seis and Buoy, two friends who grew up in the same hometown and met in elementary school. They bonded at a young age over a video game, The Legend of Zelda, which features a world called Hyrule, which is the origin of their name High Rule. They started making music together in college at Wisconsin, and after graduation they moved to Chicago and began down the 3 year path of developing their brand, style and sound that we’re hearing today. “Lowkey” is their fifth single to release as a group. Their debut single, “Touch,” was a huge success, earning itself a feature on Spotify’s popular New Music Tuesday (or shall I say Friday?) playlist and peaked at #2 on their Global Viral 50 Chart earlier this year.

“Lowkey” is a self-produced song about a closeted relationship in which each verse tells a different side of the story. There’s one person who wants to keep things under wraps and another who wants to celebrate love. Seis is on the verses and Buoy brings the story together on the hook, crooning “Shh, I want you lowkey.” Sonically, I love the blend of sounds in this song. My favorite part is the background harmonies in the beginning of the song (right around the 0:30 mark). The soft layering warmly lures you into the track, which then breaks down into a simple baseline beneath vocals that tell an alluring story that many of us may relate to in the modern world.

The future is bright for these two, and we’ll be keeping our eye on them. You can also follow High Rule on SoundCloud, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Spotify and iTunes.

High Rule – Lowkey Lyrics:

[Chorus]

I want that down low nobody knows
I want that unreal nobody feels
I want that secret nobody sees
I want you lowkey, shh I want you lowkey
I want that down low nobody knows
I want that unreal nobody feels
I want that secret nobody sees
I want you lowkey, shh I want you lowkey

[Verse 1]

Be with me, don’t be closer
Leave with me, don’t leave sober
Sleep with me, don’t sleep over
Sweep it under rug and leave nothing above
I’m not tryna meet parents
I’m not tryna run errands
I’m not tryna talk future
But still I’m scared to lose ya
Cause I asked you last week after class,
Are you mad at me for what we have?
You reacted fast and glanced right passed
Then you packed your bag and ran out the back so
You want it straight, you want honest?
I just feel safe in the closet
Not sure if I could take all the drama
One day though I’ll break, I promise
Now you thinking you can make me change
Now you thinking you can make me crazy
Now you thinking you can make me sane
Prolly thinking that you just might, maybe
Look at me, don’t look passed me
Talk to me, don’t talk at me
So what do we do, me and you?
We got nothing to prove, we got nothing to lose, except for me and you

[Chorus]

I want that down low nobody knows
I want that unreal nobody feels
I want that secret nobody sees
I want you lowkey, shh I want you lowkey
I want that down low nobody knows
I want that unreal nobody feels
I want that secret nobody sees
I want you lowkey, shh I want you lowkey

[Verse 2]

Why keep it private and quiet?
Why try hide and fight it?
Why can’t we both get excited?
About these sparks we’ve ignited?
Why keep on running these circles?
I just don’t get what the purpose is
What’s worse? My ignorance?
Or the fact I’d consider this…
Situation that’s broken
Our shit seems hopeless, you know it
I wanna fix it so focus
Cause I got mixed up emotions
You know I love you a lot
You know I hate you a little bit
Balancing on a fence
It’s rather intricate isn’t it
So to those you’re afraid of
Mainly your friends and your parents
Listen, you gotta do you
Even though you’re embarrassed
So I want people to know it
I want the whole world to see this
And I’m just praying you let em’
Cause me and you, I believe in

[Bridge]

Cause me and you I believe in
Cause me and you I believe in
Cause me and you I believe in
Cause me and you I believe in
Cause me and you I believe in
Cause me and you I believe in
Cause me and you I believe in
Cause me and you I believe in
Cause me and you I believe in
Cause me and you I believe in

[Chorus]

I want that down low nobody knows
I want that unreal nobody feels
I want that secret nobody sees
I want you lowkey, shh I want you lowkey
I want that down low nobody knows
I want that unreal nobody feels
I want that secret nobody sees
I want you lowkey, shh I want you lowkey
