Cracking out of a cacoon of extensive writing and recording, Slow Turismo hit the ground running with their first single Breathe.
The dark and quirky clip was directed by the enigmatic Luke McGrath and features award-winning dancer, Alison Plevey. The song captures the feeling of limbo as a relationship comes to an end. Yes, you may have just broken up with your girlfriend but it’s Friday afternoon, leading into a long weekend and you can deal with it on Tuesday.
Listed as one of the hottest new independent talents in the country, Slow Turismo cultivate the kind of indie pop that alternative listeners are looking to hear. Similar to the bold work of Cloud Control, Bombay Bicycle Club and LCD Soundsystem, Slow Turismo writes music that nestles in between several genres which are distinguished by complex arrangements.
Their live performances are a call to arms for marginalised youth who are looking for a dance floor that has the energy of a house party, inducing the crowd to sing along to lyrics that are full of relatable life lessons. They have shared the stage with Van She, Playwrite and electro-upcomer, Raus and are no strangers to music festivals, events and high-profile venues.
Slow Turismo is currently working alongside ARIA award winning producer, Magoo (Powderfinger, Regurgitator, Jungle Giants) and will soon release their second single, Thunderstorm.
