SLOWTHAI – PEACE OF MIND

‘Only Slowthai could snap this hard about literally sleeping,’ reads the top YouTube comment on the Northampton MC’s new video.  ‘Peace Of Mind’ is as much a song about respite as it is about the relentlessly restless nature of a busy mind.  It’s not nearly as Punk as last single ‘Doorman‘; driving, distorted bass guitar…

SLOWTHAI – DOORMAN

Slowthai’s latest offering is produced by Mura Masa, but you’d hardly have guessed it.  The scuzzy, lo-fi drive of ‘Doorman’ sounds more like Joy Division mixed with Young Fathers.  It’s as raw and as visceral as any Punk track you’re likely to hear, tied together by Slowthai’s brilliantly unhinged delivery.  ‘Doorman’ just goes to show the…

SLOWTHAI – RAINBOW

Northampton’s Slowthai continues to draw comparison from horror films in the video for brand new track ‘Rainbow’.  Right from the off we know we’re in for a creepy trip as we’re kept in time by an ominous hacking sound.  ‘Thai then continues to address the issue of racial stereotyping on the track, while the video…

Slowthai hasn’t dropped anything longer than the singles he’s been drip-feeding us singles since last year’s ‘I Wish I Knew’, until now.  Only one of the seven individually-released tracks [‘Drug Dealer‘] makes it on to ‘RUNT’, a new five track EP that comes courtesy of Method Records.  It’s every bit as abbrasive as you’d hope; with…

SLOWTHAI – DRUG DEALER

Piece by piece, Slowthai’s discography is getting pretty exciting. New track ‘Drug Dealer’ latest sees him tell his characteristic tales of a broken Britain over a dark, horror flick string arrangement. In our opinion, the frequent comparison of the Northampton MC to Dizzee Rascal are unwarranted. Although in a league entirely of his own, there…

SLOWTHAI – POLAROID

One can’t help but think that Slowthai is releasing music the way it should be released in 2018.  Each drop from the promising young Northampton feels carefully considered and laser-sighted.  New single ‘Polaroid’ is no exception; a starkly simple beat and Slowthai’s abbrasive bars soundtrack a disturbing new video directed by The Rest in which…
