Art-rock three-piece Slow Riot return with new track ‘Pink December’, available to stream & download now. Conceived, written and recorded during the same sessions that produced last Autumn’s ‘Absent Dreams’ single, yet a paradigm shift away from it’s (step)sister sonically, ‘Pink December’ offers a tantalising glimpse of a new sound being forged in their Limerick rehearsal space.
The signature deadpan vocal delivery and motorik driving bass remain, but gone is the athletic, lean post-punk; eschewed for layers of dense guitars, tribal drums, and half-heard backing vocals slowly unveiling themselves over nearly five and a half minutes. This is the sound of a band delving deeper into the thematic darkness that has characterised their output to date and embracing it.
“The Limerick post-punk band are on the up.” – Nialler9
“Inventive slab of fuzzy, at times ethereal but mostly noise-infused post-punk.” – Drowned In Sound
