Caught by Y! Music during their appearance at the recent South By Southwest conference in Austin this year, the pair come off as a low-key boy/girl duo in the classic rock 'n' roll sense--singing together both in harmony and in unison, stylistically seeming to borrow from rural American music forms and, at times, oddly recalling the unique '60s pairing of Lee Hazelwood and Nancy Sinatra.
Officially formed in 2006 after the demise of Sheffield band the Lonely Hearts, Slow Club have been heard in the usual run of seemingly random commercials (Ritz crackers, Lay's potato chips, Vodafone) and TV shows (Chuck, United States Of Tara), but can be heard to much greater effect on Yeah So, their debut album just released Stateside recently.
That Slow Club is attracting an interesting fan base is difficult to argue--as this pair of videos may make abundantly clear. First, check out their official video for "Because We Are Dead."
Now take a look at this video response from a pair of fans:
Yes, Charles and Rebecca are an interesting pair, and we were pleased to capture this interview and informal performance with them in Austin.
We predict you'll be seeing much more of them in the future.
