The Slow Show "Dream Darling"
Ok. So I’m normally here in blurb-writing land to try and describe a new album as succinctly as possible, and try to throw a few “jokes” in too. I’m also here to step aside when a band’s press is so good that after reading it I can’t even begin to do better than it. Such is the case with The Slow Show’s new album Dream Darling. When Picadilly Records says “a delicate varnish of Americana, sparse piano, guitar chords in minor keys, tender brass, swelling strings and choirs, each element combines to infuse the album with a northern soul” I know good enough to step aside. Somewhere between the Annie Lennox choral arrangements and Coldplay lies the sound of The Slow Show. Check out the devastation of “Hurts.”
