Witterings from an old indie kid
The Slow Summits (named after The Pastels 2013 album of the same name?) are an indiepop band from Linköping, Sweden. Languid Belles seems to be their debut release and it contains four jangling pop tunes that are reminiscent of days gone by.
It’d be hard not to think of 1980s UK indie bands when listening to the EP. Off the top of my head think The Smiths, Orange Juice, The Weather Prophets, The Housemartins, The Loft, and The Wedding Present. Given that Amelia Fletcher provides backing vocals on two tracks here the latter should be no surprise. It’s an enjoyable listen and the four retro jangle/indiepop songs here stand proud. Highly recommended.
