They're completely ace! I've been listening to the album all week and it's amazing - full of surprising twists and turns and a sound you don't really get from anywhere else. I saw them in Stoke! a couple of weeks ago and I couldn't believe how loud and sexy they sounded.

I'm so glad I got to see their first ever popshow! And really happy to be playing at their album launch gig. They're sounding fantastic live right now - really tight and focused, but as much fun as ever. <3 <3

We are putting them on soon - 30th May at the Enterprise to be precise. I have the album but haven't listened to it yet. This thread reminds me to do so!

Full details to follow in a few days.

I got the LP as well and it really is a great record - surprisingly ballsy in lyrical content for such a pop band!

'Kiss Me Again' is so fabulous!

Depends whether you have time. If you run out of time, I'll do it. If not, you go ahead and do it.

The track on the Thrilled to Bits ep is fucking amazing. A real step on, I think.

SLOW DOWN TALLAHASSEE ALBUM "THE BEAUTIFUL LIGHT" OUT ON 26th MAY
Image
Thee SPC are very proud to announce the imminent arrival of Slow Down Tallahassee’s “The Beautiful Light”. This debut album is a shining beacon of fuzzed-up indie pop! As Slow Down Tallahassee say themselves:

“We started the band because we wanted to write songs with warmth and passion. Songs that people could dance to and fall in love with, combining truth with fantasy, exploring the shadows between innocence and corruption. But, above all, our goal has been to make a great pop record.”

And that they have done. Taking guidance from their love of 50s twang, 60s pop and 80s indie, Slow Down Tallahassee have created a world of their very own. Join their gang and you’ll never be lonely again.

"The Beautiful Light" has already received the accolade of "Album of the Week" on Huw Stephens BBC Radio 1 show, as well as airplay on BBC 6Music.

Thee SPC release this highly anticipated debut album on the 26th of May and it'll be available in the usual independent outlets. But you can order your copy NOW from Thee SPC online shop and get it a bit early! ORDER HERE NOW

1 The Beautiful Light

Same. Glad to see that the 'older' favourites made it onto the album as well.
