band crush: slow club
if alice in wonderland had an ipod....
But listen to a couple of Slow Club's songs, and you'll soon see that these Sheffield kids have officially come into their own. With folksy undertones, swaying melodies, and even an organ cameo or two, the band's soulful sound is so earnest that nobody can accuse them of being disingenuous. Overseas they've earned comparisons to the White Stripes, but we think their upbeat sensibility falls more into the category of Kisses, Two Wounded Birds, and even Tilly and the Wall.
Their single "Two Cousins" off their forthcoming album Paradise (out in September) is total musical magic, the kind of soundtrack we'd pick for our own daydreams. Watch the video below, and prepare to drift away.
