Wisconsin band Slow Pulp has been a favorite of the indie community lately.
Slow Pulp has had quite the come up lately, garnering all of the necessary indie recognition to blow up, from playlist covers to press opportunities this past month has been very kind to the Wisconsin band. Sonically, the EP, titled Big Day, has a dense palate of sounds and styles, some more upbeat and others a tad more depressing.
My favorite track off the record was “High” where the band leads into the hook with a very slow, droning opening to the track that is flipped on its head as the guitar and drums rip into the empty atmosphere to replace the melancholy with the guitar-fueled haze of angsty rebellion. This is followed by the much more dreamy “Young World,” that brings the record to a close on a much less depressing note.
