    "...the truth is that Clark doesn’t need to show her face on MASSEDUCTION; her vitality is implanted on every note of the collection.

NPR First Listen – Slow Club – Complete Surrender

July 7th, 2014

slow-club-2

Sheffield, England — the setting for The Full Monty and part of the British equivalent of the Rust Belt — seems an unlikely spawning ground for the wistful pop of this duo with a deceptively static name. But from the youthful, acoustic-and-harmony-based pop of their early material to the more elaborate arrangements of 2011’s Paradise, Slow Club’s music has always had an upful sheen that’s sometimes belied by melancholy lyrics and melodies.

For Complete Surrender, their third full-length, singers and multi-instrumentalists Charles Watson and Rebecca Taylor have moved on from their earlier releases, streamlining and refining their songwriting while hauling in a truckload of R&B influences from several different eras. Northern soul has been a strong tradition in the north of England since the 1960s, and here the duo has brought a crate-digger’s expertise to their soulful sounds.

There’s a heaping spoonful of Motown in “Suffering,” some Supremes/Bacharach flourishes on the title track, Philly soul strings in “Not Mine to Love” and a giant Stax Records/Otis Redding influence and a bring-the-house-down vocal from Taylor on … er … yes, a song actually called “The Queen’s Nose.” (The title, which comes from a children’s book and 1990s BBC TV series, will be baffling to anyone who isn’t a Brit of a certain age; the song’s lyrics address heartbreak, music and, apparently, pregnancy but not the book or show, at least not overtly).-NPR Music
