God Is in the TV

Wisconsin-based band Slow Pulp deliver a solid debut with the album Moveys, which finds the band switching off from a laid back indie pop sound and others that pump up the loudness and energy without getting too heavy. Emily Massey’s vocal delivery really matches the downer lyrical content that find her dealing with life through one of the hardest years we’ve all had to deal with.
