Slow Riot ‘City Of Culture’ Single Out on July 10th via Straight Lines Are Fine

‘City Of Culture’ turns the title on its head, a bass-heavy monster which recalls future of the left, Wire or even Dublin contemporaries Girl Band.” – Clash

“Raucous post-punk energy” – Nialler9

“With an electric, Strokes-esque vibe, “City of Culture” finds the Irish post-punk outfit Slow Riot building up the momentum they’ve already capitalized on in the past year.” – PopMatters

Brooding post-punk trio, Slow Riot, are releasing their debut single, ‘City Of Culture’, via Straight Lines Are Fine on July 10th. A three minute blast of angular, chiming guitars and half spoken / half shouted vocals, the song is a sardonic paean to the cultural status their native Limerick was awarded in 2014.

‘City Of Culture’ works as a perfect introduction to the band, infusing their indebted post-punk influences – Gang of Four, Television, Wire – with more contemporary bands such as Girl Band and Future of the Left. Dark, swooning guitars are layered over deep, rumbling bass tones reminiscent of the early garage-rock of The Horrors, whilst the unorthodox songwriting keeps the single deeply rooted in Slow Riot’s totally refreshing sound.
