SLOW CLUB – WILLOW TREE (HOTEL ROOM RECORDING)
Currently touring around the country, getting their second album in tip top shape, Slow Club are easily one of the best live acts around.

They might look like rejects from a Topman modelling competition, but you cannot deny that The Drums make you want to run down to the beach, take up surfing and waste the next 4 years of your life in a haze of sun, sea and sand – luckily for the band, a combination that is bang on trend at the minute. Saint Etienne have been let loose with a track from their debut album, and RCRD LBL have the result for a free download.
