Slothrust

biography

Slothrustis  principal songwriter,  singer, guitar player and  unrepentant aesthete Leah Wellbaum,  with drummer Will Gorin and bassist  Kyle Bann. On their fourth full-length album 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.The album  was recorded in Los Angeles with producer and mixer Billy Bush (Garbage, Neon  Trees, The Boxer Rebellion).Cultivating their potent brew of classically informed,  soulful rockin the fertile Brooklyn indie scene, Slothrust released their debut LP,Feels  YourPain, in 2012, followed by 2014’s Of Course You Do. The band expanded their fervent following  via the song “7:30 am,” selected as the theme for the FX Network show “You’re The Worst”. Their  2016 Dangerbird debut album Everyone Else established the band asa breed apart, capable of serving up deceptively  clever epics that veer satisfyingly between incandescent riffing and pop hooks, winsome anxiety and powerful heft.Throughout  2016 and 2017, Slothrust lit up audiences on sold-out headline tours, festival dates and support tours with Highly Suspect in  the US and Manchester Orchestra in Europe. The band closed out 2017 with Show Me How You Want It To Be, an EP of of unexpected  and inventive covers of songs by artists as diverse as Al Green and Britney Spears, Black Sabbath and Louis Armstrong.
