Buy: Amazon Remember all those years ago when S Club 7 told us "there ain't no party like an S Club Party"? It turns out that they were prophesying about the coming of the Slow Club party. Slow Club are a another boy-girl duo from Sheffield that are about to release their debut album 'Yeah So' on July 6th through Moshi Moshi Records. Panic not though, this duo are no Ting Tings... Their record hops between alt-country songs so tender and sweet that you can almost feel your teeth dissolving... Just when you think a trip to the dentist is in store the tone shifts and the pace jumps. Before you know it you are stomping along to your very own hoedown - which frankly can be a bit embarrassing on a busy tube train, so I'd urge a little caution. Again, with their sound hopping between some really stripped back fragile acoustic performances to their much big sounding stomp-alongs there are moments on the album where it's easy to lose sight that there's just two band members of Slow Club. The slower moments are reminiscent of fellow Sheffield-ers (not convinced that's the right word - Sheffield-ites? Sheffield-onians? Sheffield-iens?) Monkey Swallows The Universe, especially in closing track 'Our Most Brilliant Friends'. Complete with hand claps and whistle along choruses the album has some great moments such as the promo single 'It Doesn't Have To Be Beautiful' which almost flirts with the sound of the likes of Tilly and The Wall and has a rather terrific video to boot. There's also a couple of lower (and slower) points but overall this album hits the spot. This is a record that has plenty of radio friendly moments and although not earth-shatteringly new, its really good fun and can provide a great accompaniment to a sunny afternoon. Definitely one to check out this summer.
