Sloes - alt-rock from England

Sloes

 

Those of sharper vision will recall the introduction of Sloes last month as ‘Juniper-rock’, put that down to the Gin reference in the name and if that doesn’t help either, lets move on to the music…
Sliding through the grills of the speaker like salmon leaping waterfalls caught in the sunlight, there is a mesmeric continuity to the shifting sounds as they fuse with the listener in shimmering untouchable feathering. The lightly played violin affords Sloes the opportunity to slide the sheets of sound like granite gently sheering from rock-face, as jagged face meets lack of friction.

Sloes have allowed themselves the time to gain mutual understanding of the interplay between instruments and each other prior to launching themselves to a broader audience, which enables the quintet to provide the ears with material which has a steely fulcrum around which the flowing textures of sound rotate in spirals of ever increasing stream of delay, that for their very flimsy capture the attention.

Chasing Tails – EP – Sloes is available on iTunes.*

Band of the Month – October 2014 – Editors’ Choice

Band of the Month – August 2014 – Readers’ Choice

A very clear leader this time round for the readers’ choice of band of the month, sorry it is just under four hours early, but there is an LP review to coincide with a release date being published at 00:01 BST on the 1st, so rather than the normal time of 23:59 here at 20:09.

Jonathan - band of the month
