The Slow Readers Club are a Manchester based four piece who specialise in dark and brooding indie electro. Their music has drawn comparisons with Interpol, The Killers and The National.

Their last five singles have enjoyed airplay on BBC 6 Music and XFM (featured twice as XFMs shock of the new) the latest single ‘Plant The Seed’ has been playlisted on TXFM Dublin.

They have been getting rave reviews for their live shows, including sold out headline shows at Manchester Gorilla and Academy 3, Isle Of Wight Festival, Tramlines Festival, Ramsbottom Festival and Blackthorn Festival (including support slots with ‘Catfish & The Bottlemen’, ‘The Struts’, ‘Reverend and the Makers’ and ‘The Sunshine Underground’ )

“2015 has unquestionably been The Slow Readers Club’s year. Finishing off in their home town in style with a show at Gorilla that sold out weeks in advance, their second album Cavalcade finally being released to universal acclaim, the likes of Steve Lamacq and XFM (Radio X) picking them up and an ever-growing live following has meant they’re no longer of one the city’s best kept secrets but a player with the world laid out in front of them for 2016″
Even The Stars

“The Slow Readers Club are quite simply too glorious to be kept a secret; see them, be seduced and then pass the pleasure on.”

“Think New Order and Depeche Mode with all the catchiness of a cool indie band, and this gives you some idea to what they’re about. Definitely one of THE bands of the moment!”
Sonic Bandwagon

“The Slow Readers Club are without doubt on the cusp of something spectacular and if you haven’t immersed yourself in their indie electro sounds by now, then it’s high time you paid attention”
Louise Dodgson – CityLife Extra

“We are extremely excited about these guys here at XFM and Forever In Your Debt is always playing on our big indie jukebox”
