As long time fans of English folk rock and indie pop outfit Slow Club, we were elated to find out that Rebecca Taylor had launched a new solo project named Self Esteem. Hopefully this doesn’t mean the end for Slow Club, but we’ve always been open to change and the fresh creativity it brings. Rebecca reportedly drew influence from everything and anything to create Self Esteem, be it pop culture, the dark and light within her own life, her experience on the road as part of a band she’s loved for ten years, or the freedom that came away from stepping away from said band. Your Wife is Self Esteem’s debut single, a scintillating, dramatically entrancing burst of left field art pop with unique elements and mesmerizing tribal drums. On production duty is Django Django’s Dave Maclean. Self Esteem explores vulnerability and strength on this first riveting single, which is also the title track from a forthcoming debut EP out September 29th on Kick N Clap. Pre-order, here.

English folk rock and indie pop veterans Slow Club make a spectacular and much welcome return with a new single named Ancient Rolling Sea. Not only that, but a new album is on its way, too! Ancient Rolling Sea is a slow simmering, tenderly wistful delight, its weathered thrumming pace and softly wheeling vocals giving an effect much appropriate of the song’s title. Ancient Rolling Sea is the first new material from Slow Club isnce their 2014 album Complete Surrender, although they released their covers album I Swam Out To Meet You in 2015. Needless to say, I and I’m sure plenty of other folks are eager to hear more new Slow Club as the year progresses.

English indie pop duo Slow Club’s new tune Suffering You, Suffering Me is a classic gem off their forthcoming album Complete Surrender, out July 14. It’s such a surprisingly bold and loud track from the duo, exemplifying their new vibrant direction. The track powerfully encapsulates a resplendent, vintage motown pop sound, bringing to mind the likes of the great Diana Ross and her music, which I grew up to, thanks to my mom. It’s hard for me not to enjoy this trumpeting, soulful number.

Today, I received Baltimore synthpop band Future Island’s new album Singles. And I celebrated. And I popped it in for a listen. And I celebrated. I’m incredibly happy that Future Islands has received all this renewed attention and buzz, particularly after their performance on the David Letterman show. It’s easy to forget that most people have never seen Samuel Herring and his band play live. They’re really something special. Indie pop duo Slow Club offered up a gentle, tender cover of Future Island’s Seasons (Waiting On You), the lead single off Singles. Slow Club manages to retain the passion of the vocals despite the soft, quiet cover. I couldn’t help but be reminded of Sinead O’Connor. There’s a raw vulnerability expressed in the cover that will stop you in your tracks.

Slow Club on Sofar Sounds

October 17, 2012

Ahh, this is charming. Slow Club performed at one of Sofar Sounds’ private secret shows in Brighton recently and they’ve shared a piece of that magical set with us. Here they are with the lovely, acoustic Hackney Marsh. Sofar (songs from a room) Sounds is an organization that organizes these private living room shows all across the world. They’ve been steadily growing in popularity, and I’m lucky enough have the chance to check out one of the events in my neck of the woods very soon. Right now, they have a Pledgemusic campaign going on to support how big they’re becoming. Check that out here and give them a lil help if you can. They’re doing some awesome stuff and they often share video and audio from their shows.

OFFICIAL VID: Slow Club – Beginners

June 19, 2012

Not only is there a new video from beloved indie folk pop duo Slow Club, but Beginners stars the one and only Harry Potter… er.. I mean, Daniel Radcliffe. He joins the ranks of the many awesome celebrity lip sync videos. Those never seem to fail to entertain and strike some odd, resonant chord within everyone. The song itself is a sultry, more vintage sounding ditty from English duo. It’s a polished song compared to some of the old Slow Club songs that first shot them into the limelight. And it’s good, too!

Slow Club covered French darlings Francois & The Atlas Mountains’ track Edge Of Town, and as always, they pull it off with folksy panache. Is it just me, or is there a sultry Feist-like quality to this cover? Gorgeous! For comparison, here’s the great original Edge Of Town…
