After receiving huge amounts of acclaim for their breakthrough single 'Blood Pump' last year, which saw praise from Spotify, The Line of Best Fit, Discovered Magazine, BBC Introducing, Amazing Radio and more, Liverpool's psych-pop trio SPQR have now kicked their new year with the release of their next equally-captivating cut.
The new track 'Slowly' sees the group take their art-rock inspiration to the next level, delivering a far more engaging return that sees them build on the success of their previous material. Accompanied by an exceptional animated video, scripted by frontman Peter Harrison and painstakingly crafted by drummer Bex Denton, the clip took more than two months to complete and manages to convey the level of detail the band put into their art, both audio and visual.
Speaking about their latest video, Denton explains, “The idea for the video come from a serendipitous telepathic link up between me and Pete. I suggested the aesthetic I envisaged, and the script that Pete came up with for it fitted perfectly. It’s the first video idea we’ve ever actually agreed on—hence why this is our first one! It was filmed over 2 months in my living room, using a phone sellotaped to a cymbal stand and a shit load of black cardboard.”
SPQR will perform their next headline show at Liverpool's Arts Club Loft on the 29th March, and you can check out the new video for 'Slowly' in the player below.
