Slothrust unveils two videos + supports Ben Kweller at Bowery on 04.06

Slothrust unveils two videos + supports Ben Kweller at Bowery on 04.06

Few bands these days succeed in spreading their sound over genres the way Brooklyn’s Slothrust do. At one moment, blues and folk-infused verses instill a mellow, dull ache; the next, a writhing whirlwind of metal jolts and throbs in agony. The trio embodies the Brooklyn grunge reinassaince, and stands out with their versatility. One thing remains constant throughout: the beautifully bleak and haunting vocals of front-lady Leah Wellbaum, creating soundscapes of depravity, longing and darkness.
Keeping with their diverse style, Slothrust already released two unnerving videos in 2014: paying homage to their roots, they went full metal with the cover of Black Sabbath’s "Electric Funeral," while with the claymated "No Eye Candy" (streaming) they explored the colorful world of limb amputation. They will be supporting Ben Kweller on a string of East Coast dates this May, landing at Bowery Ballroom on the 6th. – JP Basileo
