Manchester Indie-Electro four piece The Slow Readers Club have released their new single ‘You Opened Up My Heart’, taken from their upcoming album 'Build A Tower', to be released on May 4th via Modern Sky.
An addictive blend of driving drums and foreboding atmospherics, ‘You Opened Up My Heart’ is a hugely infectious piece of Dark Electro Pop. A glistening hook gives way to pulsating rhythms, before breaking into its anthemic chorus, a glorious mix of haunting vocals amid sweeping synths and irresistible melodies. Simultaneously brooding and uplifting, it follows the tracks ‘Lunatic’ and ‘Through The Shadows’, both of which feature on the new album.
“'You Opened Up My Heart' is a hopeful song for uncertain times”, says singer Aaron Starkie. “A lot of our songs are existential and angst ridden but in an age where we're faced with stuff like Trump and Brexit, and people are becoming more polarised, it felt right to offer something with a more positive message. It's about a basic belief that humanity and compassion will win the day, wrapped in an Indie-Pop love song”.
