December 07, 2018 - 103 views

LA’s Slothrust deliver fourth album The Pact, out now via Dangerbird Records, andDouble Down is the sublime lead track

 

Slothrust is principal songwriter, guitar player and unrepentant aesthete Leah Wellbaum, with drummer Will Gorin and bassist Kyle Bann

 

Bizarre and mundane, tender and confident. The awkward duality of the forever outsider, rightly reclaimed as power. This Is The Pact. 

 

Produced and engineered by multiple Grammy nominated Billy Bush (Garbage, Muse, James Lavelle) in Los Angeles. Slothrust’s latest album is a confident journey across 12  songs that oscillate between a quietly reflective tenderness and a slick, sleek confidence; balancing playful innocence with ballsy swagger. “This is the most fun I’ve ever had making a record,” Wellbaum confirms. “We were able to take risks. I’m saying yes more than no these days.”

 

With The Pact, Slothrust constructs a luscious, ethereal cosmos perforated with wormy portals and magic wardrobes, demonstrating more clearly than ever the band’s deft shaping of contrasting sonic elements to forge a muscular sound that’s uniquely their own
