Sloes Return With Awesome New Single "Misunderstood"
London-based indie band Sloes today make their long-awaited return with the release of the awesome and anthemic new single ‘Misunderstood.

I am absolutely in LOVE with those scintillating electric guitars, frenetic drums, synths and soaring vocals. This song has got me pumped for the weekend and I just want to party now! ‘Misunderstood’ is the perfect combination of indie, pop and folk and sees the band bring a refreshing twist to their catalogue of songs, whilst also staying true to their original roots. Stream it below!

Speaking about the song, guitarist Jo Milnes said,
We’'ve always known we can write anthemic and upbeat tracks it’s just that when we did the last EP it was the slower, more brooding songs that were coming out easier for us. The EP had been well received but it didn'’t show the upbeat capabilities of the band. Paul had the riff for quite a while but we’d never done anything with it although the track came about really quickly in the studio.

“We’'ve experimented a lot more with these news tracks. They’'re a lot richer in sound with more going on. We got really creative with drum machines and synths and Cam [producer] had really interesting pedals to play guitars through which is great for guitarists but not so much if you’re not!”
Vocalist Jerome added,
We wanted to give ourselves the challenge to write something immediate, to release something more vibrant and grab the listeners attention. As a band you have to challenge yourself and do things out of your comfort zone.”

“I try to write lyrics that represent the ideas of the band as a whole. After Brexit, I had a feeling of being displaced and disillusioned with the result. We’'re not a political band but we have strong morals and it was hard to wake up to the decision that the country had made to become more insular.”

The band will be playing the following shows in support of the new single:
Friday 20th July – London Water Rats
Wednesday 8th August – Waiting Room, Stoke Newington

Sloes are Jerome Clark (vocals/guitar), Jo Milnes (bass), Paul Hand (guitar), Luke Coare (drums) and Katie Milnes (violin).
