Slow Pulp Give Us Some New Age Flute Rock with “Shadow”

Their tour with Girl K, Mamalarky, and Strange Ranger starts next week.

Slow Pulp are a great band. I recently thought, “Huh, we don’t talk about Slow Pulp’s 2020 album Moveys enough.” That record found the Chicago rockers combining playful melodies with unexpected lush arrangements, all while maintaining their love of noise. Today, they’ve returned with another single that we also shouldn’t sleep on called “Shadow,” and it continues that distortion-underlining cheer that the group does so well. There’s a bit of flutage going on, and Emily Massey’s vocals soar, collide, and double in size like an unending echo.

“Shadow was written on the tail end of recording Moveys in the Spring of 2020,” the band explained about the new single. “This song is about feeling like you’re out of control, like there’s a certain part of you that doesn’t seem to want to work with the rest.”

Check out their upcoming tour dates and listen to “Shadow” below.
