Everything Everything helped launch Low Four – Manchester’s new online music platform, studio and event space – by performing five songs at Old Granada Studios. The show was live-streamed last week, but fans can now watch it back on the Low Four website and on YouTube.

“We loved it. It’s technologically up-to-date but they’ve maintained the original character,” says Everything Everything‘s Jeremy Pritchard. “It’s a great sounding room. The experience of live streaming was new to us and we enjoyed the way it felt halfway between a recorded session and a live gig, since there was an audience on the balcony. We would definitely come back.”

Everything Everything performed five songs in front of a live studio audience:

Low Four is a new online music platform, studio and event space based at the iconic Old Granada Studios in central Manchester. The multifaceted project will add to the building’s musical legacy – which includes TV debuts from The Beatles, Gene Vincent and The Sex Pistols – by hosting, streaming and archiving its own television-style, online music programming. Acts such as NZCA LINES, the Mercury Prize-nominated jazz trio GoGo Penguin, and Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip vocalist) have already been confirmed for the coming weeks, with many more soon to be added.

Low Four boasts a six camera, Ultra High Definition video system, and the inclusion of an audience viewing balcony means that these recordings (along with other special events, concerts and parties) will be made open to members of the public.

Constructed in 1956 and last refurbished in 1979, the studio’s live room, with its generous five-metre high ceiling, was acoustically reinforced to deliver an exceptional recording environment but was left unused since ITV moved to MediaCity in 2013. Originally a recording and dubbing studio, it birthed countless seminal television and film soundtracks: Brideshead Revisited, Jewel In The Crown and Sherlock Holmes, to name just a few.
