Oh Slow Club. Yes, Rebecca and Charles, the finest purveyors of indie-acoustic folk-pop return with….hold on what’s this? It’s not indie-folk pop. It is (gasp) a CHANGE IN DIRECTION. How could they? What does this mean? Is our love affair over? Will there be tears of sadness?
No not at all.
As the lyrics suggest, if tears are to be shed they are tears of joy, because Slow Club have gone all soulful and sultry while remaining splendidly melancholy. Besides being everyones favourite bit of Sheffield indie duo eye and ear candy ( OK maybe it's just us?) they have also always been one of those bands who from the evidence of their live gigs have threatened (in a good way) to develop and change. Certainly this tasty morsel suggests a metamorphosis is occurring, although we’ll have to wait for further new material before we can make any firm conclusions. For now though just suck this one in.
Slow Club play London’s Village Underground on the 13 May and this song is available for free download from the bands website (here)
