Slow Pulp
Share New Track ‘Montana’

Debut album ‘Moveys’
out 9th October via Winspear 

Wisconsin-bred and Chicago-based band Slow Pulp – Emily Massey (vocals/guitar), Alexander Leeds (bass), Theodore Mathews (drums), and Henry Stoehr (guitar) – are gearing up to release their self-produced debut album, and have so far shared three standout singles in “At It Again”, “Idaho“, and last month’s “Falling Apart” 

Now they are sharing one more single from the upcoming record prior to its release, the soft and shimmering “Montana”.

Emily Massey says of the track, “This song is about moving beyond defining myself in terms of my mental health. I’ve been working through this over the last couple of years and this song is a reflection of this process and where I am now. “Montana” was the first song we finished recording for the album. Henry’s early demo was kind of heavy and distorted, and when we went to play it together for the first time, it came out a lot slower and cleaner. Our friend Willie Christianson wrote and recorded the slide guitar and harmonica parts.”

This absolutely beautiful new arrangement is destined to cause a stir, “Montana” is a delicate yet passionate new track from Slow Pulp, who are easily one of hte most enchanting and exciting acts around right now.

“Montana” is a gentle orchestration that will draw the listener in and keep them captivated throughout. The deeply reflective lyrics and emotional appeal from this release resonate to the attentive audience. With serious Lomelda/Phoebe Bridgers vibe from the soulful vocal harmonies, these emotive tones echo with the complimenting melodic and meaningful musical exploration. The song emits a feeling of growth, power, and facing personal fears whilst enriched with melancholy.

A testament to hard-fought personal growth, Moveys is a remarkable debut made in remarkable times, as Slow Pulp powered through health challenges, personal upheaval, and a pandemic. The songs on Moveys took shape while on tour with Alex G in 2019, after the band scrapped an album’s-worth of material following Massey’s diagnosis with Lyme disease and chronic Mono. The obstacles only continued from there, as Massey’s parents were soon after in a severe car crash…one week before COVID-19 shut the country down. Full of blistering energy and emotional catharsis, this compelling 10-track collection highlights the band’s resourcefulness and resilience to come together during unthinkable time.
