Hailing from Belfast, raised in Manchester, and currently residing in the serene Welsh countryside, we welcome Low Altitude to the Whitelabrecs discography with the release of the captivating album ‘Boat’. With a musical journey spanning over three decades, Bruce Magill has evolved from a frontman in local guitar bands to solo work, exploring electronic music as a producer. He has released music with labels such as Criminal Communications, Skinny Dog Records, Supermarket Records, and Mailbox Records.

The decision to step away from music in 2006 was a defining moment, but 2020 provided the perfect opportunity for a creative resurgence; "After a 14-year hiatus from music, I found solace and inspiration during the lockdowns of 2020" shares Bruce. Under his new moniker, the recording sessions led to the creation of ‘Boat’, an album that serves as a profound exploration of tranquility and solitude.

In recent years, Low Altitude’s sonic contributions extended to diverse projects, including the use of tracks from the ‘Waves’ LP in the wellbeing app Syntropy States. His participation in the Sony-sponsored immersive audio compilation, 'Immersive London Calling,' showcased his versatility with Low Altitude ambient tracks and Dub Techno creations under the name 'Seion’.

‘Boat’ is a testament to Bruce’s meticulous creative process. Drawing inspiration from modern minimalism, astral jazz, and movie soundtracks, the album explores emotions anchored by a recurring drone motif. You are invited to join on this sonic voyage, inspired by the sensation of sailing by the light of the moon and the stars. A postcard of a 2022 coastal retreat along the Pembrokeshire coast, Boat captures the essence of nature with encounters with seals, dolphins, and seagulls.
