Tickets are now available to see The Slow Show at Rescue Rooms!
The Manchester alternative band ‘The Slow Show’ formed in 2012 and have had an incredible 8 years after releasing their debut album ‘White Water’. Their latest album ‘Still Life’ has a completely different feel to the debut, but the strongly atmospheric melody remains consistent. The band say ‘you think we don’t evolve, but as you can hear on this record we’ve stepped quite a bit out of our comfort zone.’
This slight warping of sound could link to a change in scenery for the band; since 2019 singer Rob Goodwin moved to Germany. Coincidently, next door to the hometown of Belgium for fellow bandmate Fred ‘t Kindt.
In third album ‘Lust and Learn’ (2019) we hear ‘t Kindt’s classical education frequently appear on the album. Moreover, Byrne-McCullough’s upbringing on Jazz and drummer Chris Hough’s background in brass bands plays into the melodies frequently. Altogether this creates a somewhat catalyst for an indie album that twists and turns into something totally different on the scene.
This musical journey leads us to the most recent album ‘Still Life’ which the band say they ‘see what we make now as instrumental music.’
