Recently signed to Gary Powell’s (The Libertines) 25 Hour Convenience Store, The Slumdogs are clearly shrouded in a tonne of excitement and potential. ‘Cut The Conversation Short’ is the perfect example of this.
Produced by Emily Lazar and Chris Allgood (Foo Fighters, The Killers, Haim), it is a painting of modern British life. Intense guitar riffs mixed with poetical lyricism picture the darker tendencies of life. Its verses are almost autobiographical, an energetic diary entry if you like. Gritty and punk heavy, it is entirely listenable… perfect for both the live and studio setting.
With inspiration ranging from Cabbage and Idles to The Doors and John Lennon, it is no wonder that the song is impressive and well thought over. Its title can even be assumed to be a stab at the toxic culture of modern Britain, times where powerful conversation amongst the elite is intolerable.
“Intense guitar riffs mixed with poetical lyricism picture the darker tendencies of life.”
Formed in Blackpool, The Slumdogs seem to have made the local scene their own. Venues such as the Bootleg Social have often played home to raucous, energetic live sets in which the band are rapidly gaining a ferocious reputation for. With trips to London’s Nambucca, Liverpool’s Cavern Club and Leeds’ Lending Room already in the bag, it is no wonder that the band are already gaining a fierce support across the country.
2017’s ‘Nightmare’ is the perfect example of The Slumdogs’ sound, both heavy and energetic. Lyrically astute, it will no doubt make an appearance at the bands’ return to Blackpool’s Bootleg Social as part of their own event, ‘FEVER.’ They’re even bringing Proletariat and The Brookes to support in what will be a sensational night of live music.
‘Cut The Conversation Short’ is released through 25 Hour Convenience Store on August 19th 2018. You can watch the video below:
