The Slow Readers Club lets out a rush of alternative energy.
With relentless drum rhythms and their best Ian Curtis vocal impressions in tow, The Slow Readers Club has shared its latest offering Lunatic.
The track is arguably the band’s most well-rounded offering to date, combining punchy guitar lines with a constant rush of energy and varied vocal melodies for a rousing, engulfing single. This infectious sound comes despite a sense of paranoia and claustrophobia being imbued into every syllable, something which the band has deliberately infused into the composition.
“Its about feeling at odds with the world, especially politically in recent times, to the point where you feel as though you are losing your mind,” explained frontman Aaron Starkie. “There’s also reference to how psychiatry has been used to remove political dissidents from society: ‘Hard to find a fit, for I know that Im a lunatic, Sure in days of old, I’d be chained to the floor.'”
