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…
