Slothrust
Slothrustis principal songwriter, singer, guitar player and unrepentant aesthete Leah Wellbaum, with drummer Will Gorin and bassist Kyle Bann. On theirfourth full-length albumThe Pact, Slothrust constructs a luscious, ethereal cosmos perforated with wormy portals and magic wardrobes,demonstrating more clearly than ever the band’s deft shaping of contrasting sonic elements to forge a muscular sound that’s uniquely their own.The album was recorded in LosAngeles with producer and mixer Billy Bush (Garbage, Neon Trees, The Boxer Rebellion).Cultivating theirpotent brew of classically informed, soulful rockin the fertile Brooklyn indie scene, Slothrust released their debut LP,Feels YourPain, in 2012, followed by 2014’sOf Course You Do. The band expandedtheir fervent following via the song “7:30 am,” selected as the themefor the FX Network show "You’re The Worst”. Their 2016 Dangerbird debut albumEveryone Elseestablished the band asa breed apart, capable ofserving up deceptively clever epics that veer satisfyingly between incandescent riffing and pop hooks, winsome anxiety and powerful heft.Throughout 2016 and 2017, Slothrust lit up audiences on sold-out headline tours, festival dates and support tours with Highly Suspect in the US andManchester Orchestra in Europe. The band closed out 2017with Show Me How You Want It To Be, an EP of of unexpected and inventive covers of songs by artists as diverse as Al Green and Britney Spears, Black Sabbath and Louis Armstrong.
