The Low Fog is the creative banner of Bay Area musicians, Tom Chandler and Brett Swain. It is the culmination of a three-decade long friendship and musical camaraderie. Together, they bring the essence of nature and the human spirit using soft instrumental bleeds. And within the panoramic expanses of music, resides the hum and drum of life that, on the wings of melody, floats unfiltered to the heart of the listener. The duo has just released their brand new album, East Ridge and is opened by the track On The Way Back. 

Led by a sparse mass of guitar acoustics, the soundscape shines with the metallic jingles of the tambourine and cymbals. They add a growing dimension, a space for the listener to project their imagination. Pulsing beats orient the spreading sonic fluid, and with it, its emotional quotient. The sharp and fresh sound of the chords are enriched by orbs of trickling synths. It is a delicate frame of intricate formations, whose majestic subtlety makes for a wonderful listening experience. 

The duo create a unique sonic field where melodies acquire a mood. Ranging across several genres, their soundscapes are often ruminative and nostalgic. They debuted in 2021 with a self-titled album, drenched in nature themes and imagery. This sophomore release takes a trip down memory lane as it musically catalogs specific and distinctive human encounters. 

The track is available for streaming on popular sites like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music!
