Bass driven post-punk? Check.
Recorded at the Manic Street Preachers’ FASTER studio in Cardiff? Check.
Missed the boat a little bit and realised there is now a video as well as a Soundcloud? Check.
Hailing from Dublin are Slow Riot, and Demons is the track released from their forthcoming EP Cathedrals. Containing a deeply driving baseline that is propelled by tight drumming and a guitar that’s always there, but never intrusive. Dark and brooding, it ticks my particular boxes.
Cathedrals is due for release on Straight Lines are Fine on the 23rd of October. You can listen to the track here…
…and if you’d like to view the video, head over to Clash (the video is currently unlisted, so I’m not going to be a cheeky sod).
