Slow Club, a pair who are much revered by us all at FFS, have finally announced the release date for their début album, Yeah So. Now, don’t get too excited just yet. We do have to wait until 6th July to explore the pleasure trove that Charles and Rebecca have doubtless put together for us, but luckily they have a bit more brilliance stuffed up their plaid sleeves.
To make the wait more bearable, they’ll be releasing ‘It Doesn’t Have to be Beautiful’ as a single on 22nd June, which they’ll launch with a headline gig at the ICA in London. Get your tickets swiftly.
“Live as on record, Charles and Rebecca enrapture audiences with the same involuntary joy and simplistic rush that they themselves imbue”. Too effing right. Slow Club are doing their fair share of the summer festivals this year, so if you don’t catch sight of them across a sun-drenched field at some point, frankly you’re terribly unfortunate.
Below are their live dates in full:
Sat June 13th Isle of Wight festival
Sat June 20th Moshi Moshi takeover @ Winterwell festival, Gloucestershire
Mon June 22nd Single launch @ ICA, London
Fri June 26th Glastonbury
Sun July 19th Latitude festival, Southwold
Sun July 26th Secret garden party, Kent
Thurs September 24th Scala, London
Go get yourselves some joy.
