    So Rebecca Taylor from Slow Club has finally released her first solo album. This thing is jammed packed with pop bangers.

    The Best might just be the best pop song ive heard this year (sorry Carly Rae fans)






    The scope of this album goes far beyond anything Slow Club did, do not sleep on it.
     
  2. Never fully got into Slow Club and this is much more my deal, yes please.

    this album is seriously tremendous.

    Between that intro and the opening song I get the sense that Slow Club was creatively strangling her. This feels very freeing.

    This has been in constant rotation the past few days. It's such a unique pop album, the massive hooks are there but there's a lot of little electronic bits and backing vocals that add so much.

    Should I check out Slow Club if I'm in love with this? I've never heard of them.

    YES. their first two albums are 1000% worth checking. Their 3rd and 4th album while good did kind of lose me though.

    Yeah So is peak "twee-core" and is in line with first Los Campesinos! if your into them. It's an incredibly simple album (mostly acoustic) but features some fantastic song writing/story telling.

    Paradise (their 2nd album) is easily in my top 5 albums of all time and is where they perfected their sound. Just an overall perfect indie rock album/

  22. I'M SO INTO THIS

    Dublin show November 9th that'd require me to take a day off from work - if I have the time saved up I'm definitely going.

    Verses give me lowkey life without building vibes and for that I am super into it
