ARTIST: DEAD SLOW HOOT
ALBUM: NO REUNIONS
LABEL: PHILOPHOBIA MUSIC
'No Reunions' is the debut album from Sheffield 4 piece Dead Slow Hoot. The album has 9 tracks and comes in at just over 41 minutes, and is available through Philophobia Music on limited edition black and white splatter vinyl as well as CD and digitally.
Their style is cleverly written sombre rock pop songs with vocalist Hugo Lynch taking centre stage with his powerful and wide ranging vocals. There are nods to The Editors and The National in places but there's enough originality on display to dispel those familiarities, with the overall feeling left of a band with their own clear ideas and a collation of sounds taking in rock, electronica and shoegaze.
