The Slow Readers Club Plot November UK Tour Dates and new single
After festival slaying performances at Isle of Wight, Ramsbottom Festival and Tramlines over the summer, THE SLOW READERS CLUB are plotting a series of live dates across the country this November.
For many, Manchester is a city synonymous with guitar-driven indie with a rich musical heritage that is hard to ignore. It has arguably given us as many seminal bands as London, whilst also producing producing plenty that feel all too familiar in comparison to others; stale even. Something which makes The Slow Readers Club even more crucial to the city’s musical landscape.
Forgoing the arrogant guitar-based swagger of so many of their contemporaries, The Slow Readers Club are making waves with their own brand of brooding electro-indie. It might not be the stereotypical sound of contemporary Manchester, but The Slow Readers Club are breathing new life in to tired lungs and are very much the band Manchester’s clamouring for.
Forthcoming single ‘Plant the Seed’ is a pulsating slice of electro pop with an infectious vocal hook and has already drawn comparisons with Depeche Mode and The National. The bands last four singles have enjoyed airplay on BBC 6 Music and XFM and featured three times as XFMs shock of the new. The single ‘Don’t Mind’ was featured on Steve Lamacqs round table on BBC 6Music.
The Slow Readers Club have been getting rave reviews for their live shows, including a sold out show at Manchester Academy 3, Isle Of Wight Festival, Tramlines Festival and Ramsbottom Festival (including support slots with ‘Catfish & The Bottlemen’, ‘The Struts’, ‘Reverend and the Makers’ and ‘The Sunshine Underground’ )
