Bombed Out Records announcement!!!
we were very pleased to see this announcement from Bombed Out Records last week on facebook:
“Not sure whether anyone noticed the sneaky last track on our web site homepage but as it’s been a slow news week let’s make it official… All being well there’ll be a Slow Science release on Bombed Out before the end of the year! Here’s a reminder of how ace this band are! Bit chuffed.”
We’ve been huge fans of this label for years and are absolutely delighted to be joining the BO family (including The Dauntless Elite, The Amistad, Wooderson…)! we’re planning to write and record the new release for release later in the year so keep your eyes peeled and in the meantime check out http://www.bombedout.com/
The lovely people at THE GIRLS ARE wrote a great review of our set at New Year New Start.
“Despite their early start at 4.30pm, when Slow Science hit the stage at the Bombed Out Records’ New Year New Start, the venue is already alive with loyal fans of the DIY/independent punk label -from all over the country. The yearly all-day event has been running on and off since 2001 and involves a selection of bands who have released records through the label. The Well itself is a rock venue/pub just outside of the city centre and has a history of promoting punk and metal bands, usually in a DIY fashion, like today.
Soon the loud and energetic 90s indie rock sound of Slow Science has the band room filled with excited faces. With Stacey and Jon sharing vocals, the harmony effect is similar to 90s emo band Jejune, whilst the constant tempo changes, intricate guitar playing and energy make it feel fresh and exciting. Stacey’s bass is turned up loud so that every note is booming through the speakers as she bounds around the stage with enthusiasm, the growling melody adding more to the band’s sound than just a rhythm section. Opening song, and also to their EP, ‘Kidnap to the South’, is a pop punk frenzy, with the distorted sound coming through the monitors creating a raw Husker Du feel. Launching straight into ‘The Ballad of Joe “Mama” Besser’, the crowd is now fully on board, singing along to the contagious “wooooah” parts. Slow Science have impressed with their polished playing that still doesn’t lose its old school raw feel.”

Big Cheese magazine review
A few weeks ago we got a nice wee mention in BIG CHEESE’s new online ‘No Division column’;
“Kingston’s SLOW SCIENCE, formed from current and former members of bands such as Serf Combat, Black Tax and Heroic Doses. With an anthemic ‘90s indie punk sound and dual male/female vocals, fans of bands like Superchunk and RVIVR should love this. They’ve recently embarked on a short UK tour but now vocalist/guitarist Jon is off travelling so you’ll have to wait until later this year to enjoy their fun live performance and pick up their storming demo EP, if you haven’t already.”
