CANCELLEDSaturday 28 March
Atmospheric shoegaze, postpunk and postrock
A compelling abrasive shoegaze band, dealing with the aesthetics of contrasting sounds. Heavy like a gloomy dream yet soothingly vibrant. They debuted live March 2017, released ‘ease’ their long sold out debut e.p. in May 2017. Played Roadburn festival 2017 in The Netherlands, Eurosonic 2018 , Fluff fest in Czech Republic, toured Germany, Belgium, France, Holland, UK, Hungary, Slovakia, Poland, Austria, …. Headlining spot on Left Of The Dial festival ( Netherlands biggest postmusic city festival). Receiving AirPlay on BBC Radio 1, Kerrang, Triple J (AU), KXLU (USA), Studio Brussels (BE) , Radio 1 (BE),…. just to name a few.
The band recorded their debut LP ‘Aurora’ at The Ranch Production house in Southampton with Neil D. Kennedy who produced bands like Milk Teeth, Creeper, Boston Manor,… ‘Aurora’ was mastered at the Atomic Garden by Jack Shirley known for his work with Deafheaven, Oathbreaker, The Smith Street Band… At around the same time Slow Crush signed with the London based Holy Roar Records who released their much anticipated debut LP on the 28th of September 2018.
2019 touring the USA in March / April, including radio session at the legendary ‘Part Time Punks’ in LA. Slow Crush are bridging boundaries with their own distinct sound between Shoegaze, Postrock, indierock, Heavypop, Nugaze, Postpunk & Grunge.
Support Cultdreams are still a post-punk band at the very base, but with Things That Hurt, they smartly pivot into a fascinating shoegaze/indie territory while staying free of any classic stereotypical tropes. This is an album that is truly their own, and hopefully, it will provide Cultdreams a platform to build upon in the coming years.
