Slow Dazzle is a trio ( coming from UK formed in 2009 but current line-up was settled in summer of 2010. They have released a seven-track EP called "Songs Of The Universe" and at the time they work on their debut album which going to be released later this year.
Now about their EP.. Although it has good samples of songwriting, it lacks in production. For example songs like "Sunfighter" loose a lot of its dynamic due to production. Of course, that's something I understand cause it's their first work, it's self-released etc. I think that if you catch them in a gig, it'll sound much better and powerful.
Generally their songs are mid-tempo with some bursts and slow parts here and there. Personally, I liked more the "Sunfighter", a great rock driven track with a little punk in it (in which the voice reminds me a british oi/punk band but I can't remember which one) and "Song Of The Universe" which has a great guitar solo in it and it can be considered as their psych moment.
Overall, it's a promising release and shows that these mates love what they do. I would like to see some more heaviness in their sound, a thicker production and parts like the one that "Song Of The Universe" ends.
I'll wait to check their full album too cause from a couple of tracks I listened (they are on MySpace), sound more complete and more close to what I would like to hear (and they sound more like the band do now).
