Slim Wray a Garage Rock band from New York in the USA centres around the duo of Howzr (Guitar / Vocals) and Chris Moran (Drums / Vocals).
A scintillating scythe of percussion cleaves the air to announce the arrival of Slim Wray, this is rock as it should be played. Reflecting on relationships, the lyrics take the classic angsts of boy meets girl and delivers them inside a resounding maelstrom of well delivered riffs and rattles.
The energy palpably hammers against the walls and the tracks deliver everything you could want for an evening of rock and roll. Slim Wray also manage to deliver it without the sound distorting levels which takes much away from many new bands and the delightful fuzzed guitar work layers in all the nuances required to emit both the power and the glory of it all.
I wonder whether they will end up with a full time bass guitarist as without it the sounds would be too tinny, so it is good to find that all the material currently around does include that all important four stringed instrument – time will tell.
The tracks work superbly well as they don’t try to reinvent the wheel, rather concentrating on what they know and enjoy and Slim Wray ably define why working to a bands strengths and not attempting to stretch skills beyond the limits works so well, providing the ears with a delightful moment in time.
