Slow Club Details

Slow Club

Since forming in Sheffield in 2006, Slow Club have released two EPs and two albums, each showcasing different and distinct facets of their musical DNA. While most bands seem happy to rest on their laurels, afraid to push their sound forward, multi-instrumentalists Rebecca Taylor and Charles Watson get a bit bored of recreating the same things over and over. So while their 2009 debut album Yeah So was a beautifully ramshackle collection of country and folk-tinged strumalongs, 2011’s more experimental Paradise – produced by Luke Smith (Foals, Everything Everything, Fryars) – pushed and pulled the band into myriad new musical directions. But nothing can quite prepare you for the quantum leap that takes place on their beautifully epic forthcoming third album, Complete Surrender.

Recorded with producer Colin Elliot, who’s previously helped create an equally widescreen sound on albums by Richard Hawley, Complete Surrender touches on everything from Motown and the output of Memphis’ Stax Records to the immaculately produced pop of the 1970s, via Frankie Valli and David Bowie. “I was listening to a lot of Michael Jackson, Marvin Gaye, lots of 70s stuff,” states Charles, reflecting the fact that the band’s varied musical reference points shift and change all the time. Rebecca, for example, spent a lot of time between albums luxuriating in the straight up pop of Katy Perry and Taylor Swift, before shifting focus to the likes of Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and Fleetwood Mac. “The way these women would tell a story and open their hearts and be simple and truthful in their lyrics really inspired me,” she explains.
