ERRORS – SLOW ROTOR
The new track from the band’s fifth album features female vocals, thrusting the band into what might be another sonic stage for them. So far we’ve had the frenetic dance-rock of the first two albums, It’s Not Something But It Is Like Whatever and Come Down With Me, and then, after the band slimmed down to a three-piece in 2012, the vocally textured post-rock of Have Some Faith In Magic and the, again dancier mini-album, New Relics.
Slow Rotor almost has a pop swag about it. The chorus line, “There’s something I can think about it’s wholesome / There’s something I can think about it’s real,” is the closest I’ve ever heard the Glasgow band get to a genuine vocal ‘hook’. The band have now been going for over ten years, which they proudly declared on their Facebook page recently. I don’t think I’d have fallen for this Errors back in the day, had they begun with Slow Rotor‘s sound, but it’s really great to see a band constantly develop without compromise, like Errors do.
The band’s fourth LP, Lease of Life, is released on 23 March via Rock Action Records.
