Still one of the biggest interview pulls I’ve managed (thanks Twitter!), The Slow Readers Club are one of my absolute favourite bands on the circuit at the moment and, upon my rather delayed return to writing this nonsense, they have some recent(-ish) sounds that I’ve once more fallen in love with.
Their latest offering combines divine falsetto moments with a whole host of infectious guitars riffs, synth mastery and a rhythm section that’s more reliable than the market outside my window waking me up at 7am every day except Sunday. They’ve stuck to the tried and tested three minute pop song formula and, in that time, they’re able to get your feet shuffling like there’s no tomorrow. It may not be the most upbeat of songs but the pulsing nature of the bass and drums feels like you’ve got a disco record playing on a slightly too slow speed. That’s not to say it doesn’t sound just right as it is, more that I had a fair bit of fun messing around with some music editing software halfway through writing this. I don’t get distracted easily, honest…
Oh right, the review.
Yep, The Slow Readers Club are ruddy brilliant and ‘Plant The Seed‘ is one of their very best offerings to date – more of the same please.
