When Slow Club Met Kiss (Sort Of)


Slow Club Kiss

With three albums under their belt, Slow Club has steadily made their way from working as an unknown live duo act, to a critically acclaimed headlining band. With a slow (as their name suggests) and subtle approach to song writing, you would have difficulty finding any comparison with a heavy metal band like, say, Kiss. And yet, for the music video of 'The Pieces', they called on the themes of obscurity and featured Kiss. well, a Kiss tribute band. According to Charles Watson, founding member of Slow Club, the Kiss tribute band was used because he liked the interesting concept of performing and working as a different band, and performing someone else's songs.

Following the release of their third studio album, 'Complete Surrender', on 11th July, 2014, Slow Club explained how they came together and the inspiration behind the music video for 'The Pieces'. Watson explained: "'The Pieces' video was filmed in Huddersfield, and the band are a Kiss tribute band from Belfast. The idea was just kind of to try and get inside the mind of a band that kind of played other people's music and I think it's an interesting concept."

Slow Club, Interview


Interview with Slow Club

Boy-Girl duo Slow Club, consisting of Charles Watson and Rebecca Taylor, are making big strides within the music scene at the moment and with the new video for 'Beginners' from their much-lauded second album Paradise currently making the rounds and raising eye-brows (particularly for the inclusion of Daniel Radcliffe) it looks as though the only way is up for the Sheffield-natives.

Slow Club, Paradise Album Review


So: Slow Club have 'grown up'. They've 'matured'. That's what every review is keen to tell you about Paradise, the Sheffield twee-pop duo's second album. Charles Watson and Rebecca Taylor have abandoned the liveliness and occasional frivolity of their earlier work in favour of an 'adult' focus upon slow, mournful, introspective ballads. There's something rather insidious about this narrative, which frequently surrounds bands' later albums: a dismissal of exuberance and experimentation as juvenile traits which a group has to overcome before they can achieve their real artistic goal: relentless, samey wallowing in the emotional pain and existential isolation which (the story suggests) characterise our adult lives.
