Ahead of UK and EU tour dates supporting Death Cab for Cutie, Slow Pulp have announced they’ve signed to ANTI- Records and shared new single ‘Cramps’ – a song lead singer Emily Massey says ‘Came out of a jam at practice right after I had proclaimed that my period cramps were particularly bad that day. It is about searching for things you wish you had in other people and creating this character in your head that has all the physical and emotional attributes you feel that you are lacking.’

Full of vital energy from the first note, there are fuzzy elements of acts from the early-mid 2000s indie scene like Built to Spill or The Walkmen while the melodies swirl around in addictive fashion. Emily talks about keeping things together and wanting everything in its right place: ‘There’s nothing better, watch out for Heather, I play out the same scene bleeding on my new sheets, I wanna bake out on the concrete’.
