slenderbodies has deservedly become the talk of the indie scene after a splendorous 2017 in which they released break out hit Anemone as well as a stellar debut EP and an incredible remix of Zhu’s Hometown Girl. When the Los Angeles based indie duo headlined a show in San Francisco a few weekends ago, I made sure to make it out to catch one of my favorite rising acts, and I was prepared to dance to my heart’s content to their slinky indietronica and breezy whimsical psych pop, which oft reminds listeners of bands like Glass Animals and Alt-J, but with a heady infusion of psychotropic electronica. The pair dazzled us with their songs, and I danced in sync with a euphoric crowd, sure I was fortunate to see the duo in an intimate space before they play the big stages. Since then, slenderbodies has released an extended version of their Fabulist EP, and I’m overjoyed that it includes this new song, ‘blood to gold’, a perfect serving of their sooty wagging, breathy gusting, and guitar curling indie/art electronica. Stream slenderbodies’ Fabulist Extended EP, here, and mark these guys as rising stars.
