The Slow Revolt Unveils New Single 'Never Get Close' Out June 2nd 2014

The Slow Revolt has the first of three singles coming on new label FIELDS, the first being 'Never Get Close' on the 2nd of June.

A cutting-edge throwback to the early days of blues, or the yearning new voice of formalist electronica? If nothing else, The Slow Revolt is a study in contrasts: lush, romantic lyricism tied to art-school high concept; tight beats coupled with wild guitar abstractions; and a stunning voice that stays with you long after the music fades.

First made visible via his rework of Patten's Peachy Swan, The Slow Revolt's first single, This Dark Matter / Doldrums was two hymns to a dead affair that struck a chord with XfM, Clash, 6music and Radio1 - as well as earning the support slot for MMOTHS recent tour, Ofei, America's Balmorhea, and four dates for new label FIELDS with Max Cooper and Ghosting Season. Originally one man carving out his own rough territory outside today's increasingly formulaic electronica, The Slow Revolt now performs as a two-piece - two expert musicians sparring across live loops, precision triggered beats, guitar, and that voice.

Live dates:
May 9 - Electric, Brighton
May 20 - Hoxton Bar and Kitchen, London
