The Slow Show, Sharp Scratch Review
The Slow Show combines their equally disparate backgrounds into a positive sum of its parts. From the literary influence of authors such as Karl Ove Knausgård, to the classical and jazz training of band members Joel Byrne-McCullough (lead guitar), Frederik ‘t Kindt (Keyboards) and Chris Hough (drums), everything about The Slow Show creates a unique and compelling sound. White Water, the band’s debut album, was a haunting, somewhat somber affair, and its follow-up Dream Darling was where the classical influence really began to take hold. Their forthcoming third record is where the influences really begin to shine as the group is coming into its own. Never has this been more evident than on ‘Sharp Scratch’, the band’s latest single and the first to be taken from their forthcoming, and yet to be announced, third studio album.
