Slow Club is a folk rock duo made up of Charles Watson and Rebecca Taylor, hailing from Sheffield, England. I originally heard about them when a blog reader recommended them, and I’m so glad I checked them out – I love the breezy simplicity of their music and the 60s elements that are sprinkled throughout.
Not only is Rebecca Taylor gorgeous but she’s got impressive pipes and also plays guitar and percussion – sometimes on objects like glass bottles and chairs. They were just listed by stylecaster as one of the hottest indie acts from this year’s SXSW festival, and were kind enough to answer some questions for us!

I think i was at my Grandma’s house. I have no idea what it was about.

Describe the time leading up to a show – do you have any pre-show rituals?
I think it depends on where we are. Ive been sleeping at the merch desk a lot on this tour.

Tell me something most people don’t know about you.
