The Slow Readers Club Share New Single You Opened Up My Heart

Monday, 12 March 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

The Slow Readers Club have released a new single.

You Opened Up My Heart is the latest track to be shared from the Manchester indie-electro quartet's upcoming fourth studio album, 'Build A Tower', following Lunatic and Through The Shadows. Speaking about the new song, vocalist Aaron Starkie said:

"You Opened Up My Heart is a hopeful song for uncertain times. A lot of our songs are existential and angst ridden but in an age where we're faced with stuff like Trump and Brexit, and people are becoming more polarised, it felt right to offer something with a more positive message. It's about a basic belief that humanity and compassion will win the day, wrapped in an indie-pop love song."

With the follow up to 2015's 'Cavalcade' out on May 4 via Modern Sky, the band will accompany the release with a UK tour.

There’s something new, yet familiar, about its melodies, its heart-warming immediacy and the effortless chemistry that oozes from the bewitching songs within. We’re basically talking the musical equivalent of love at first sight, which is exactly what fans of bluesy rock ‘n’ roll and American roots music will doubtless feel after hearing Jawbone’s quietly magnificent self-titled bow.

Photo: Lera Pentelute Supergroup is a big, ugly label. It’s reductive, and it ramps up the pressure on what is always a new endeavour—even if the players are seasoned pros. Friction is naturally created by expectations rubbing up against the mechanics of making music in a fresh formation, often leading to overhyped records that feel like a tired exhalation of breath from their first note.

Mon 12 Nov 2018
A striking development in the past decade or so has been the extent to which people discover music through mood as opposed to genre. Streaming services have adapted to perceived consumer demand by releasing reams of playlists tailored to every emotion or context imaginable, from deeply depressed to “songs to sing to in the car”. This has its upsides and downsides for a band like Pijn.

Mick Jenkins - Pieces Of A Man (Album Review)
Tue 20 Nov 2018
Mick Jenkins was riding the crest of a wave when his breakout mixtape 'The Water[s]' dropped in the summer of 2014. Talented heads like Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa, Noname and Saba would all go on to emerge from the same bubbling Chicago hip-hop scene, but Jenkins had positioned himself in critics' minds as the moody and technically gifted older brother. He already appeared fully formed in an artistic sense, framing highly conceptual songwriting with jazz-influenced verses and a raspy vocal delivery.
