Tracklist: Slow Club - Two Cousins

For the vernal equinox, a pair who are usually rays of indie sunshine. See, we do actually throw this together and become desperate for some sort of hook. So what can we expect from Slow Club phase two, apart from the sensation that Charles and Rebecca look ever more like members of completely different bands? The second album Paradise is out September 12th - it would have been out by now but Rebecca fell ill late in recording - and is promised to be more expansive. This evidence comes across as less a positive jam as preferring to take their sweet time drawing out the emotion, holding back until letting the trademark desperate harmonies loose on one of the many involved choruses. Doesn't seem to be any guitar on it either, preferring piano or tinkly keys.
