Band: THE SLOW DAY
Who: A three piece Manchester based indie rock band inspired
by artists like Gary Clark Jr, The Black Keys and 90s British indie.
Pick: HOME – the band’s third single
Score: This impassioned power ballad moves your heart and soul. Its mesmerizing
ardour and aroused fervency send shivers down your spine. The staggering voice
is breathtaking and causes goosebumps. Midway, when the decibels go way up the melodramatic intensity increases to a mind-boggling level. Stay home, stay safe and
enjoy this marvelous sonic supplication…
