, Premiere: Slow Riot add a tumult of noise to their sound on ‘Pink December’

Limerick alt-rock trio Slow Riot drop a new single on Monday and here is the first play of the track.

Drawing on post-punk and alt-rock, Slow Riot’s ‘Pink December’ is a tumult of noise with a Peter Hook-style bassline, dense layers of guitar and drums which add sway to the darkness.

Says vocalist Niall Clancy:

“Sonically it’s our most satisfying Slow Riot track. At the core of a lot of our songs are some pretty intense themes and rather than just hint at those through the lyrics we wanted to drag them to the surface through the whole atmosphere of the song”.

Production was by Kevin Vanbergen (The Pixies, The Maccabees, Dinosaur Pile-Up, The La’s and Biffy Clyro). Slow Riot, Niall Clancy (bass, vocals), Aaron Duff (guitars) and Paul Cosgrave (drums) are currently writing their debut album.

‘Absent Dreams’ was their most recent song before this.
