Slothpop

Indie Pop (Indianapolis)

Slothpop is one of those rare bands that can simultaneously sound expansive and intimate, atmospheric and earthy, minimal and fully realized, distant and engaging, quiet and inherently powerful. Slothpop’s eponymous self-released full-length debut dropped earlier this year and exhibited the band’s monumental growth and brilliant ability to play with deliberate abandon. Like the animal that is the band’s namesake, Slothpop moves toward a definite goal at an exacting pace, embracing the journey as much as the destination.

You’ll Dig It If You Dig: Tribal Pop played by a Chamber orchestra and chanted by Sinead O’Connor in a church where Brian Eno is the choir director. (Brian Baker, CityBeat)

~ "At its most basic, Slothpop's sound is restrained Indie Pop. The arrangements are tempered and utilitarian in design, the melodies are sweetly sonorous but not overbearing and instruments move in and out with clockwork care. Nothing sounds like it was spawned on the fly. The overarching minimalism also means that you have to dig around for nuance and listen intently to soak it in. Slothpop's sound tends to not come to you; you have to get closer to it." (CityBeat)
