Daily Discovery #108: SLOWCOACHES
If a soundtrack was needed to epitomise 2016, the loud, fast and brash nature of SLOWCOACHES couldn’t be more ideal… And they’ve just released their debut album.

Supercharged. In your face. The tracks sound like a non-stopping train. Taking your breath away with speed and power as they hurtle passed, most of which clocking in at under 3 minutes. They’re everything you want from a noise-pop, punk inspired group, bitter at what the world has dealt them. With a niggling fear of the potential of a dystopian future in 2017 the album could be considered therapy.
Lyrically SLOWCOACHES are uncompromising. ‘It’s Boring, You’re Boring’ is splurted out over driven guitars on Norms & Values. No time for double meanings and metaphor, here we talk straight in uncomplicated punk statements.
The group have just finished a tour around the UK and dabbled in European shores. After time spent working alongside music, sleeping in vans and coping with the usual stresses of being in a group, parts of the record could be born out of collective frustration.. Let alone the current political swing around the globe.
The album is released on a limited 300 run of splatter vinyl available through Bandcamp.
