Manchester four-piece The Slow Readers Club have released their new single, ‘Supernatural’. The new song premiered with Chris Hawkins at BBC 6Music who said The Slow Readers Club are, “A band on the brink of the success that they absolutely deserve.”
Weaving seamlessly between driving rhythms, lush, synth-laden tones and anthemic choruses, the single is the latest to be taken from the band’s third album, Build A Tower, and was remixed by Rich Turvey (Blossoms, The Coral, Courteeners).
Regarding the new single frontman Aaron Starkie says, “Lyrically, ‘Supernatural’ is about love and vulnerability and the anxiety that comes with surrendering yourself to someone. Musically, it felt like new territory for us when we wrote it – you can hear a progression in our sound, and it’s one of our favourite tracks on the album.”
Released in May this year via Modern Sky, Build A Tower went straight into the Official UK album chart Top 20 at number 18, 10 in the physical album chart, 4 in the vinyl chart, 4 in the indie album chart and number 1 in the cassette chart.
The Slow Readers Club toured the UK extensively in support of the release earlier this year, which saw them sell out shows across the country including the 2,000 capacity Manchester Cathedral, within just hours of tickets going on sale, and London’s Islington Assembly Hall.
The band will be appearing at summer festivals including the main stage at Kendal Calling, Beautiful Days in Devon and Germany’s Haldern Pop Festival, before hitting the road again to play the biggest and most defining shows of their career yet – including shows at London’s Scala and Manchester’s O2 Apollo – and are happy to announce fellow Mancunians PINS as special guests on the London, Glasgow and Manchester dates of the tour.
