Slaves - Photo Opportunity
Published: 4:45 pm, August 13, 2018Words: Jake Hawkes.

You know that moment when you're running for a train, and someone grabs you by the arm and asks for an autograph and a picture, meaning you miss it? No, us neither. Luckily Slaves are on hand to let us know how it feels (not that great, as it turns out).

As Isaac talks about the perils of turning down a photo with a fan and looking like an ego-filled rock star, Laurie's guitar line is unusually restrained, providing acres of space for the vocals to hit home. That's not to say they've ditched the riffs entirely, each chorus swells to a crescendo reminiscent of the standard Slaves sound, but it quickly recedes and returns to a minimalism we haven't seen before from the duo.

‘Photo Opportunity' is the third single from upcoming album ‘Acts of Fear and Love', and once again it's a bit of a curveball. It's still unmistakably Slaves, but just enough has been changed to keep things interesting.

In case you haven't been keeping count, it looks like the boys are 3 for 3 when it comes to singles released vs absolute bangers. Roll on the album, we say.

On their first album, The Amazons kicked down the door to the mainstream. With the follow-up, ‘Future Dust’, they’re ready to do it all over again.
