Slow Riot – post-punk from Limerick
What you may need to know…
01. Limerick trio Slow Riot have been working away on honing their post-punk/shoegazing haze since the last time we checked in with them (coincidentally on this week last year).
02. They’ve busied themselves in the meantime, with late-2016 single Absent Dreams clocking BBC Radio airplay and earning adoring glances from U.K. and Irish music press.
03. Streaming above is new single Pink December, officially released yesterday on all major online download and streaming outlets.
04. Having done the rounds of the U.K. in the latter months of last year, they’re now hunkered down to finish their debut long-player for the label, due later this year.
Thoughts: A cavernous atmosphere takes an introspective slice of post-punk and makes something more of it, stuck halfway between grooving and sludgy tones.
