Low Pressure is the third album by I Come to Shanghai. Recorded in their studio in Athens, Georgia, Low Pressure explores the idea of paradise falling apart: A band playing on a beach in the middle of a hurricane. Drawing on a palette of dreamy lap steel, orchestral synthesizers, adventurous guitars, synthesized nature sounds, lush vocal harmonies, and a heavy rhythm section, the album weaves songs and instrumental compositions into unpredictable mood swings and stormy weather patterns. Melodies are long and rarely repeated. Harmonies constantly shift under your feet. An occasional squall of noise swallows the band whole.
