One of my great friends shared a band with me on Facebook. The friend is Mr Nick Horslen and the band who are very new to me are Slowmother. Their sound has elements of classic rock, prog and a degree of dark menace, which is something that I personally love in a band. They describe their music as Chemical Blues which also works for me. Your experience of listening to them may lead you to describe them very differently from the way I have. But I will be surprised and disappointed in you if you don’t conclude that they are a bloody good band indeed!
Slowmother are based in Milan and are made up of Alessio Slowmother on vox and guitars, Grazi Mele on drums and backing vocals and Pietro The Butcher on bass and backing vocals. Obviously all their names are the names that they were born with……. right? They sound like a very tight band with some great songs, especially the phenomenal “Drugs” and “Liar”. Vocally I find them reminiscent of Stiltskin whose singer Ray Wilson also went on to front Genesis briefly in the late 90s. I would definitely pay to see this band, so let’s hope that they come to play in the UK soon. Let me know what you think of them. Check them out on Facebook, Bandcamp and Soundcloud.
