May 20 Hoxton Bar and Kitchen, London -

“Stunning” - John Kennedy, XFM

“We fall harder for The Slow Revolt with every listen, you will too” - The Line of Best Fit

“Full of poise and precision, there’s an inherent drama to the performance
which is difficult to deny” – Clash

“Creeps under your skin without you realising it until you notice how many
times you’ve just listened to it on repeat” - Disco Naïvité

A study in contrasts, The Slow Revolt is lush, romantic lyricism tied to art-school high concept; tight beats coupled with wild guitar abstractions; and a stunning voice that stays with you long after the music fades.

First made visible via his rework of Patten’s Peachy Swan, The Slow Revolt’s first single, This Dark Matter / Doldrums was two hymns to a dead affair that struck a chord with XfM, Clash, 6music and Radio1 - as well as earning the support slot for MMOTHS recent tour, Ofei, America’s Balmorhea, and Max Cooper and Ghosting Season.

At first, one man carving out his own rough territory outside today’s increasingly formulaic electronica, The Slow Revolt now performs as a two-piece - two expert musicians sparring across live loops, precision triggered beats, guitar, and that voice.

For this track I wanted to combine simplicity and complexity, so I went for a simple broken beat structure and bassline, and then used lots of Max for Live shenanigans to modulate the drums and hats and vocals in an interesting way, playing with psychoacoustics and detail as much as I could. It’s a bit of a weird one, but I’ve been playing it out a lot and it seems to work!
