So SLOW CLUB had a lifetime to make their first album, which garnered top star reviews and was described by the NME as: “uplifting, catchy, interesting, joyous, heartbreaking and – not that it matters, obviously – very good”. In their second effort, it seems the band have learned the power of allowing songs the space to breath.

With its swooning but raucous take on doo-wop and its frazzled, fragile representation of soul inspired rock, Paradise is typical of a band whose members divide their obsessions between Destiny’s Child and Noise-pop. Slow Club’s currency is songwriting which sees romance in the unlikeliest of corners, and Paradise applies a lighter, more honed lyrical touch to telling their story. More than anything, Paradise is a platform for Slow Club’s mordant Englishness at its best, displaying a restraint and self-deprecating wit even in the darkest of sentiments.
