From the land of ABBA comes Swedish indie folk/rock and sometime modern pop quartet Slim Loris. Slim Loris has dropped new music for the fans, old and new, their CD ‘Love and Fear’ is their third offering. To describe Slim Loris’ sound as a band with a 60’s Brit Pop invasion and a little American Woodstock folk rock sound muddled together wouldn’t be far off the mark. The influences of bands of yore like The Beatles and cult fave Bon Iver can be heard on the ‘Love and Fear’ album.
Some might think their music too slow, too mellow, not enough vim and vigor…well music is subjective, so, what’s a band to do? Keep rockin in their own unique way!
The opening tracks are on the down beat and then the album builds itself in tone and pace with song like‘Sparkling Sun’ down through aptly titled ‘Down’ no puns intended. For those that feel like they’ve jumped down the rabbit hole with this album, stick with it, it won’t hurt…promise.
