Latitude 2014

Slow Club open Obelisk Arena at Latitude 2014

Latitude gets underway with a set from Rebecca and Charles.

Slow Club are tasked with kicking off proceedings on Latitude’s Obelisk Arena for the weekend. “Oh my god,” yells Rebecca; and quite rightly.

There’s a huge crowd assembled right back to the fairly intimidating slanted stadium seats. Within one song Slow Club have shaken off the nerves and are straight into ‘Complete Surrender’, the title track from their new album. From now on everything is “wicked!” instead, and material from the band’s new, second album, leads the way.

With a haul of prosecco in tow and a holiday-club full of ballads providing the main clout, Slow Club rise to the challenge, introducing ‘Not Mine To Love’ with a gleeful announcement; “This is a sad one!” Beautiful harmonies, blue skies, and more tales of heartbreak and longing than you can shake a much-needed pot of suncream at.

‘Thanks for getting up and coming,” says Rebecca, “we didn’t think anyone would come, honestly.” She needn’t have worried. Buoyed up with new material, Slow Club get the main stage off to an official start in cool, effortless style.
