The indie pop of Slow Club has spent around six years working its way in the affections of a music nation. Charles Watson and Rebecca Taylor, inspired by all colours of pop and rock and a slight obsession with converting any item into an instrument, have seen their quiet little south Yorkshire band grow into something of a bigger beast.
Radio 1, 6 Music and XFM have all lined up to bow and scrape before the duo. They've been covered by Aidan John Moffatt and count one Harry Potter among their most dedicated fans (well, actor Daniel Radcliffe). Slow Club's second album, Paradise, was released around a year ago, two years after 2009 debut Yeah, So. Paradise was universally acclaimed and, perhaps reassuringly, did not make a huge mark on the mainstream music buying public, checking into the album chart at No 70. The video for the album's third single, Beginners, starred Daniel Radcliffe himself. As another promising year beckons for Slow Club, they're closing out this one with a busy four days a week or so before Christmas.
