    Slothrust

    The Pact

      Slothrust is principal songwriter, guitar player and unrepentant aesthete Leah Wellbaum, with drummer Will Gorin and bassist Kyle Bann. On their fourth full-length album The Pact, Slothrust constructs a luscious, ethereal cosmos perforated with wormy portals and magic wardrobes, demonstrating more clearly than ever the band’s deft shaping of contrasting sonic elements to forge a muscular sound that’s uniquely their own. Bizarre and mundane, tender and confident. The awkward duality of the forever outsider, rightly reclaimed as power. This is The Pact. Produced and engineered by Billy Bush in Los Angeles (the band’s new home base), Slothrust’s new album is a confident journey across 12 songs that oscillate between a quietly reflective tenderness and a slick, sleek confidence; balancing playful innocence with ballsy swagger. “This is the most fun I’ve ever had making a record,” Wellbaum confirms. “We were able to take risks. I’m saying yes more than no these days.”

      For fans of Pixes, Pj Harvey, Smashing Pumpkins.. 


      STAFF COMMENTS

      Barry says: Instantly reminiscent of the grunge heyday of the 90's (my absolute favourite heyday as it goes), Slothrust have the huge guitar sound of The Smashing Pumpkins, the irreverent snotty lyricism and spine-chilling delivery of Courtney Love (before she got all.. 'I found the plane etc') and the quiet-loud dissonance of NIN. It might seem reductive to put out so many comparisons to twenty years ago, but it's a nod to their skills that people have been trying and failing for twenty years to sound like THIS. Ace.
