    Rebecca Taylor and Charles Watson, Slow Club, have evolved so magnificently and noticeably from the very good pop-friendly music of their debut "Yeah, So?" What was once a jaunty exchange about love and all of its nuances - sometimes Taylor taking the vocals; sometimes Watson - has now morphed into a moodier kind of album/band who are still all about the theme of loving moods. I must admitRebecca Taylor and Charles Watson, Slow Club, have evolved so magnificently and noticeably from the very good pop-friendly music of their debut "Yeah, So?" What was once a jaunty exchange about love and all of its nuances - sometimes Taylor taking the vocals; sometimes Watson - has now morphed into a moodier kind of album/band who are still all about the theme of loving moods. I must admit that I haven't heard their 2nd album yet, but this album "Complete Surrender" has, Taylor, sounding a little like Lana Del Rey being backed on vocals with Charles Watson, and their individual songs match each other's perfectly. The sound is that of a very different band - in a good way - from their 2009 debut, and I welcome the change. Really good sultry music with two really good singer/songwriters who I hope someday will be more noticed and appreciated. Collapse Expand

    Even stripping off the gloss doesn’t help, because there’s not much under it.

    The overall mood is The Band given Taylor Swift's budget, on heartfelt and easily wounded love songs. [Sep 2014, p.78]

    It’s direct, unflinching and explicitly pop: rarely have Slow Club sounded this full, this bold.
