”Organic pop meets chillwave” seems a fitting label to put on Slowes, which was formed in 2015 by the dynamic Danish duo Jack Kilburn (vocals) and Anders Hamann (drums). With a profound love for alternative psychedelic pop the two musicians excell in effective piano chords, head-nodding beats, phased-out synths and sparse, yet elegant vocal melodies. Thus creating a well defined soundscape that has already gained them a considerable amount of media attention in the blogosphere. The release of their debut single ‘I Need You’ in 2016 saw support from the likes of Indie Shuffle, Clash and Idolator – going on to gain 100k+ hits on Soundcloud and exposure across BBC Radio in the UK.
Described by Indie Shuffle as ‘future soul’ and drawing comparisons from the likes of Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Whitney, Slowes’ latest single ‘Anymore’ takes their unique sound further into the unknown. Their debut EP ‘Times’ is out everywhere on May 26th via Distiller Records and is produced by Slowes with Christian Alex Petersen, mixed by Ben Baptise (Arcade Fire, Adele, Låpsley) and mastered by Mandy Parnell (Jamie xx, Shura, Daughter).
