The pop hooks are definitely here, it just takes a little longer to find them.

Slow Club’s rise endearing folk pop duo to fully fledged glorious pop group has been one of the more charming musical success stories in Britain over the last decade. Now, four albums in the duo of Charles Watson and Rebecca Taylor find themselves pulling in slightly different directions on their fifth album ‘One Day All Of This Won’t Matter Any More’.

The best moments here are the glistening, soul pop and bruised, heartfelt ballads performed by Rebecca. You’ll shed a tear to ‘Come On Poet’ and sashay a hip to the swinging ‘Champion’. Elsewhere, she’s wonderfully assured on the easy going Fleetwood Mac pop of ‘Rebecca Cassanova’ while throughout her vocals are often stunning and frequently impressive. Charles’ songs are more slow burning and low key, tender countrified slow ballads and gentle pop that slightly lack in vibrancy despite the impressive songwriting chops.

This album is definitely Slow Club’s most musically developed and luxurious but it’s also their most understated. The pop hooks are definitely here, it just takes a little longer to find them, when you do you’ll be as charmed as ever. Martyn Young
