The Slow Readers Club – The Joy of the Return

Released: 20th March 2020
Rating: ★★★
The Slow Readers Club – The Joy of the Return
Published: 10:00 am, March 20, 2020Words: Steven Loftin.

Fitting somewhere between the New York cool of Interpol, the yearning of The Smiths and the urgency of Joy Division, on their fourth outing The Slow Readers Club sound more determined than ever on their quest to plop their footsteps alongside all the other Manc giants without sounding paint-by-numbers of whoever came before.

There’s an excellent balancing of howling (‘Jericho’), and slow-paced reflection (‘Zero’), blending into an album that wants you to know precisely who The Slow Readers Club are, and won’t stop until you’re pigeon-toeing, head down, on the dark indie-dancefloor.

Give all this a try
