2012 was a great year at the pond for we were introduced to a bavarian band answering to the sweet name of Slut.
lovely and alluring sobriquet, isn’t?

the Slut addiction started first with their 2002 album Nothing Will Go Wrong, a huge indie rock LP that set the tone with saturated and delicious raging guitars (Reminder, One more Day), exhilarating tunes and melodies (the perfect Easy to Love), soothing and moving ballads (Something to Die For), and cherry on the cake: the doleful voice of singer/guitarist Christian Neuburger.

Slut is a band that juggles with both sad and tender interpretation – displaying a real taste for melancholy – and nervous guitars which clearly reminds that the band may once flirt with metal.

then came Still Number One released in 2008.
piano and keyboards which were already present on Nothing Will Go Wrong had a stronger foothold in this album, conveying a few almost-poppish (but great) tunes (Come On, Odd and Ends), without however neglecting the band’s animal attraction for guitars as Tomorrow Will Be Mine showed. if this album confirmed the band’s distance to tempered rock, it gave clear evidence of its talent for heady melodies.

you may know how impatient the frog can be when discovering a “new” band – greedy to discover more and more music.
at that time, Slut had already seven albums their credits (2009), among which their latter to date (Corpus Delicti) was a surprising concept album with the german writer Juli Zeh.

and today the pond was happily shaken by some news which announce the release of a new album on august 16th.
Alienation will see the light on Cargo Records and Next Big Thing that is already available calms down the fidgets we’ve been experiencing for weeks. stay tuned!
