Slow Club are back! As well as confirming solid plans for a new album later this year, they’ve also put out new song ‘Ancient Rolling Sea’. A slow-burner, the first preview of their new record is produced by Matthew E. White.
The duo’s last release was 2015’s covers record ‘I Swam Out to Meet You’ - which saw Slow Club putting new spins on everything from Future Islands to Arthur Russell, and Bob Dylan. Their last album of original Slow Club material was ‘Complete Surrender,’ two years ago.
“This song felt as though it just did not want to arrive for a long long time,” the band’s Charles says, speaking about the song in a press release. “I worked on the music for the whole time we were writing, and the words just landed at the last minute. With the approach I took on lyrics I wanted it to be more conversational. I wanted it to be direct, as if it were being whispered in your ear.”
