The Mixed-tape

The Mixed -Tape | Slow Riot – Absent Dreams


In this week’s edition of The Last Mixed Tape’s song-of-the-week feature The Mixed-Tape we turn our attention to Slow Riot and their brand new single ‘Absent Dreams’.

Slow Riot’s latest offering ‘Absent Dreams’ is the fullest picture of the trio’s atmospheric post-punk sound to date.

Bathed in a production that finally lives up to the all-encompassing despair, isolation and frustration that propels Slow Riot’s music, ‘Absent Dreams’ collides into focus with distant hard-edged guitars, unstoppable beats and a vocal that carries across each lyric with the same emotive weight.

Slow Riot are a band who have been consistently improving and honing their sound. With ‘Absent Dreams’ the three-piece have once again brought more life and ambience to the post-punk soundscapes they create.
