‘Nothing in their music feel rushed, it’s all choreographed like a beautiful dance.’ – Hhhhappy
Luring in listeners with infectious melodies and rolling grooves, Slow Turismois a dynamic indie band from the nation’s capital already making waves on home soil and abroad. The four-piece band creates the kind of indie-pop that alternative listeners are looking to hear. Similar to the bold work of Alt-J, Cloud Control and LCD Soundsystem, they write music that nestles in between several genres.
Slow Turismo are proud to release ‘Falter’. The single is a perfect representation of the bands energy and ethos, juxtaposing introspective lyrics with catchy post funk electro grooves.
“Not having that person that all of us defer to regarding production definitely takes a little getting used to, everything needs to be tried, then we find the middle ground between three or four options. Now that we’re at the end it’s comforting knowing that we took the song in a bunch of different directions and this is the one we were all most happy with.” – Slow Turismo
‘Falter’ is introspective and upbeat, analysing the beginning of a relationship where both sides have their guard up. The song starts with high-energy stabs featuring a sweeping funky guitar line that drops into the verse, a stripped back version of the intro with falsetto lead vocals. The chorus opens up into a more electronic feel with pulsing synth and guitars featuring contrasting vocal melodies pulling you in different directions. The middle expands on the groundwork of the previous chorus, peaking as the lyrics conclude before releasing into the high-energy outro.
‘Falter’ is an exceptionally strong follow up single to the bands EP that was released earlier this year. Catch them live this Nov/Dec.
‘These dudes can put a tune together, yesss indeed.’ – Dave Ruby Howe (Unearthed)
