Slow Down, Molasses are a sprawling indie rock collective from Saskatoon, SK right in the heart of the Canadian prairies. The band brings together a cast of 6 (and sometimes more…) members to create their own unique wall-of-sound. Songs that began as sparse, dust-covered arrangements have developed into full-fledged, lush indie-folk anthems filled with strings, horns and layers of feedback drenched guitars and sweet vocal harmonies.
The band’s second album, ‘Walk Into The Sea’ (the first being ‘I’m An Old Believer’), features guest appearances by “Canada’s indie queen” Julie Doiron and Ontario’s Olenka & The Autumn Lovers, as well as a host of talented prairie musicians. It was mixed by Ohbijou’s James Bunton (Last Gang Recordings) and tracks were also given added treatment by various artists for an accompanying remix release, the ‘Bodies Of Water Remixes’. Since the release of ‘Walk Into The Sea’, Slow Down, Molasses has toured across Canada, from Halifax to Vancouver. They have been met with great critical acclaim and Summer 2011 also saw them play major festivals across Canada including North by North East, Sled Island, and the Regina Folk Festival, before heading across the ocean to play England’s End of the Road alongside indie heavyweights Mogwai, Okkervil River and Joanna Newsom.
2012 sees the band returning to the U.K. for an extended tour anchored by appearances at The Great Escape Festival. and Liverpool SoundCity. The Cardiff date has just been added to their tour for May 2012.
Following swiftly on form their critically acclaimed debut album, ‘Music, Masks & Poems’, West Wales’ indie folk outfit Little Arrow recently returned with a free download single to whet your appetites for a full length second album this summer. ‘Our Taste Is Violence’ emerges from a chaos of ambient noise and breaks into what has become a crowd favourite at Little Arrow’s exhilarating live performances. This release captures the band’s lively organic sound whilst retaining high-quality production values, capturing every syllable of Will Hughes’ passionate vocal performance. All of this combined with a melodic hook that will be firmly rooted in your head for weeks, the song promises big things for the year ahead.
Opening the show are eager Cardiff three piece The Knocks whose post-Head Monkees garage jangle has won them a place in the final of the Big Gig at the Globe.
