Manchester four-piece The Slow Readers Club have released their new single, ‘On The TV’, the latest track to be taken from their Top 20 album Build A Tower, released earlier this year.
“'On The TV' is a song about feeling a sense of discomfort, disassociation and extreme anxiety at the state of the modern world,” says singer Aaron Starkie. “It’s a scream against everything from caged kids at the Mexican border to the rise of nationalism in the UK and US. In the verses I seek solace in family and ask my parents for guidance. It also has a great riff.“
The band’s new album Build A Tower was released in May this year and went straight into the Official UK album chart Top 20 at number 18, 10 in the physical album chart, 4 in the vinyl chart, 4 in the indie album chart and Number 1 in the cassette chart, as well as tracks receiving extensive support from BBC 6 Music and Radio X. Last month they released For All Here To Observe, a collection of acoustic reworks including tracks spanning their entire career.
