The Slow Show have announced a headline UK tour for June 2015, culminating in a hometown show for the Manchester five-piece at Gorilla on June 8th. Ahead of tour, the band will play a previously announced show at Oslo in Hackney on Friday 6th March 2015, just ahead of the release of their long-awaited debut album White Water, out March 9th on Haldern Pop Recordings.
Written about an adopted family member searching for her roots, The Slow Show’s new single Bloodline is a poignant, deeply moving song. Watch the cinematic video, shot in Brighton, here:
“Building from a delicate opening, before some Elbow-esque haunting horns enter the fray, Bloodline is a stately affair, underpinned by Rob Goodwin's National-esque croon” Shortlist
“This Manchester band are the real deal, lead singer Rob Goodwin’s boots-deep vocals sound like Johnny Cash trying to make his way around the rainy streets of Lancashire” The Crack

The Slow Show’s minimal but epic songs swell from gentle piano-led Americana to roaring choruses and string sections, while their use of choirs and a colliery brass band gives them a distinctly northern sound. These deeply personal songs about love and death have reduced audiences to hushed silence, even tears. The band have found champions at BBC 6 Music and Radio 2 and have played in Europe to large, sold out audiences.
