Slow Club is Sheffield boy-girl duo Charles Watson (guitar, vocals, piano) and Rebecca Taylor (drums, vocals, guitar). Created in 2005, the band signed with Moshi Moshi Records and released their debut album Yeah So in 2009.
In 2014 they produced their most ambitious and complete record yet, Complete Surrender, touching on everything from Motown to the immaculately produced pop of the 1970s. Equally influenced by Frankie Valli and David Bowie the album sounded like an instant classic, something so familiar and timeless it’s difficult to believe it wasn’t recorded 30 years ago.

Hot on the heels of their recent single “They Are Not Like You”, Bristol-based production duo Icarus have released a brand new track ‘Hiding’, which sees brothers Tom and Ian Griffiths stripping their sound back to its dancefloor-orientated deep house essence.
“Hiding” kicks off with big drums and haunting looped vocals, which perfectly complement the hypnotic synth line that runs through the track from start to finish. The result is a forward-thinking slice of deep electronica with dark undertones and a very danceable beat.
