Let's get this out of the way first: 'Complete Surrender' may well be the finest album Slow Club have ever recorded.
It's a record informed by heartbreak, by self-doubt, by stringent analysis of the most painful areas life can offer. Yet it looks these issues straight in the eye, bravely responding with ambitious songwriting, with a broader sweep then ever before.
Out on July 16th via Caroline, 'Complete Surrender' is a soulful, introspective and ultimately triumphant album which finds Slow Club achieving things even the band scarcely believed they could match.
Available to pre-order now, fans who do so will gain access to all manner of treats - seriously, it's tempting so look HERE.
Alongside this, Clash is delighted to be able to premiere a full album trailer. Shot by Michael Legge and the band's own Rebecca Lucy Taylor, it's stylish yet simple, focussing on the inherent chemistry between Charles and Rebecca.
Discussing the band's origins, their path to date, Slow Club are funny, engaging and continually at ease. Expressing real, genuine confidence, it's a warm, witty and at times fascinating clip which will only further whet your appetite for their new album.
