Heavens to Betsy but this is one beautiful piece of work! Slow Club's
new album 'Complete Surrender' contains two of the very finest songs I
have heard this year but hang on, I'm getting a bit ahead of myself here.

Rebecca Taylor and Charles Watson clearly know what they're about
when it comes to crafting a good tune and they both have the kind of
voices that can make you feel warm and fluffy all over. There's a bitter-
sweet quality to their writing which connects directly with our emotions.
Tales of love and loss and all the stuff which matters to sentient beings.

Producer Colin Elliot deserves plaudits too for dressing up the bare bones
of these inventions in just the right kind of restrained sonic finery they deserve.

There are eleven numbers in the set and every one's a winner. Upbeat songs
such as 'The Pieces' and title track 'Complete Surrender' are full of raucous
soulful energy and contribute welcome contrast to the largely melancholy mood
of the rest of the project but it's those sad songs which have really stolen my heart.

Ms Taylor's performance of the utterly sublime composition 'Dependable People
and Things That I'm Sure Of' is so perfectly poised and poignant that it quite
takes one's breath away and the epic final number 'Wandering Wandering' finds
Mr Watson digging deep with his gloriously fragile voice to deliver the project's
most uplifting moment. An extraordinarily moving conclusion to a truly great album.

Honest music making really doesn't get any better than this.

Essential.

The speed with which Sheffield duo Slow Club have evolved is really quite frightening. If you think they're still the twee boy-girl, acoustic duo found on debut Yeah So, you are very much mistaken. What about the ethereal, shimmering, songsmiths present on Paradise? Gone. The relentless devouring of new influences and shedding of musical skin has left Slow Club unrecognisable from their first incarnation. The Slow Club that has strutted forward on new record Complete Surrender is, unsurprisingly completely changed.

Vocalists Charles and Rebecca seem to have spent the last few years raiding their parents record collections, taking in motown, soul and all great bits of pop from the 60s and 70s, and wrapping it in the pop sensibilities of the 21st century. It's hardly surprising that the pair claim some of the albums influences as both Marvin Gaye and Taylor Swift.

Throughout the album it's the latter that Rebecca seems to be channeling. When I say the band have progressed, I don't just mean instrumentally. Rebecca has always had a great voice, but one that was introverted and tender. On tracks like "Suffering You, Suffering Me" she unleashes a powerful, bombastic and beautiful voice that could challenge even Adele's pipes. On the previously mentioned "Suffering You, Suffering Me" and other tracks such as "Not Mine to Love", she lets loose, finally able to really open those lungs.

The numbers where she takes lead are huge songs, all strings and horns, massive choruses and sweeping vocals. "The Queens Nose" starts like a Dexy's Midnight Runners album track, before building Rebecca really belting out the last chorus. It's hard not to get swept up in the drama of it all.

Love it, Love it, Love it. They both have wonderful voices, the songs are a great mix, Tears of Joy, Everything Is New, The Pieces & Wanderer Wandering are complete standouts. Love the drumming on Wanderer Wandering then the keyboard comes in.
Will try and see them asap, another fine album brought to the 21 yr old daughter's attention by her ole dad, she loves the music too. It is lovely to be able to share quite of lot of music with her but I can't get her to like prog rock (yet)!

This is a very good album and well repays repeated listens. It's all good but highlights for me are the opener 'Tears of Joy', the closer 'Wanderer Wandering', 'Complete Surrender','Number One' and 'Not MIne to Love' (which is a vocal tour de force Alison Moorer would be proud of). I like the motowney soulful stuff too (the Queen's Nose, Suffering Me, Suffering You). Both singers have gorgeous voices in different ways. Highly recommended.

A great evolution from their last stuff. Some real 60s inspired stuff, sounds a little like the Pippettes and then the usual beautiful ballads. A bit of a grower but worth the 3-4 listens!

Personally, I love this album. There are different turns in the moods and the overall sound as each singer takes the lead. One track in particular is very beautiful - 'Number One'.
