Slow Club who will be coming all the way from the U.K. for an in-store at 5pm!
The Sheffield natives and multi-instrumentalists, Rebecca Taylor and Charles Watson, have just released their third album, Complete Surrender, off of Wichita Recordings, and we could not be more stoked to have them coming in to share it us (and you!)
For fans of their earlier folk/experimental sounds, Slow Club have attempted a major sonic shift on Complete Surrender, delving into Motown/70's Stax sensibilities (we are so down). Watson asserts he had been listening to a lot of Michael Jackson and Marvin Gaye at the time of writing and recording.
The record was apparently written in a pool-house hideaway in Stroud, and despite the different direction Slow Club is taking, they claim it was a completely natural shift. Watson stated, “A lot of these songs are just us playing them live as opposed to on the last record where we didn’t really do it like that...It was fun at the time but we’ve had two more people in the band now so having more people play the songs on stage definitely changes your perception of how the band could be better. It felt like we were more of a gang doing it.”
So come on in, enjoy Slow Club and pre-order Complete Surrender in-store or online here!
