Tracklist: Slow Down Tallahassee - Curly Cuh

Sheffield bands seem to have a much shorter lifespan than most, two albums seeming like a decade and a half's service to most. As such, Slow Down Tallahassee are splitting up after the release of their sophomore collection today, from which this is the title track. Apart from a certain prevalent sense of world-weariness it's pretty much taking up where the first left off, girl group harmonies plus burbling synths and classic hook-laden pop undercut by wantonly dark and frank lyrical content. Something about it feels more isolated and lonelier even as Claire and Nicola pledge allegiance to companionship for ever, plausibly in memorial. A fitting epitath.
