Limerick’s post-punk four-piece Slow Riot’s new double A-side ‘Voyeur/Burn in the City’ is out tomorrow February 2nd via Straight Lines Are Fine.
‘Burn in the City’ is a catchy hypnotic journey with a sentimental tone and droning melody.
The artwork in the video is by Darragh Dempsey, inspired by Francis Bacon’s ‘Study after Velazquez’s Portrait of Pope Innocent X’. “The anguish and surrealism of the image echoing the themes of the band’s new music,” said the artist.
Slow Riot live Dates:
March 22nd at Whelan’s, Dublin
March 23rd Single Launch Show at Limerick Kasbah
April 1st at Notting Hill Arts Club, London
