about

Lower Slaughter return with the release of their second album Some Things Take Work on the 29th of March on Box Records.


The band's debut album What Big Eyes garnered high praise from the likes of The Quietus, All Music, Loud & Quiet and Flush The Fashion as well as finding fans in BBC Radio 6 presenter Shaun Keaveny and BBC Radio 1's Huw Stephens. The latter inviting the band into Maida Vale studios to record a four track live session broadcast on BBC Radio 1.


“One of the most unique noise rock bands to have appeared in the past five years.” The Quietus

“This is catharsis in youthful noise.” Loud & Quiet

“Politically and socially conscious, but it's also an absolute blast.” All Music


With vocalist Sinead Young moving home to her native Glasgow with other members remaining in Brighton Lower Slaughter had to find a more considered approach to writing their second album. Bass player Barney Wakefield explains:


“What Big Eyes was a collection of our songs we’d been playing live for ages which we recorded super quick in the studio. The approach to song-writing has been much different for Some Things Take Work' Essentially it’s been a ‘long-distance’ relationship, with writing taking on a different, more considered form. This gave our approach more urgency and focus though and lead us to trust our instincts as a group.”


The result of this more considered approach is a ferocious album, one that is every part as exhilarating as the band's debut yet at times summons an extra weight and urgent delivery. While looking inwards exploring mental health, therapy revelations and healing Sinead Young's lyrics are every part introspective as well as profound social commentaries of the blockades and existential struggles many face.


Lower Slaughter yield a profound energy which so few bands capture. With Some Things Take Work they deliver another essential album for challenging times.
