Just as San Francisco begins its slow descent into the brisk months we kinda-sorta refer to as winter, this week the British duo Slow Club offer up a show that is sure to warm our post-election blues-ridden hearts. Earlier this year the band released their new album, One Day All Of This Won’t Matter Anymore — a collection of breezy, lovelorn ear candy that bounces effortlessly between principles Charles Watson and Rebecca Taylor.
The team, who formed in Sheffield a decade ago, crossed the pond to work on their latest release with producer Matthew E. White at his Spacebomb Studios in Richmond, VA. The result is a lush and soulful record punctuated by Charles’s warmly conversational vocals and Rebecca’s achingly, gorgeous melodies. For a taste of their show this Wednesday — check out Slow Club’s bouncy, wistful new single, “Silver Morning” below.
The band is joined on tour by opener Annie Hart of Au Revoir Simone. Annie has been quietly cooking up solo tunes that are bathed in a sea of synthesizers and filled with the kind of enchanting vocals that brought her Brooklyn-based band so much love. Annie will be accompanied on stage by her Au Revoir Simone bandmate and Bay Area local — Heather D’Angelo.
Get there early for Still Flyin’, the San Francisco indie pop group who will be kicking off the lineup, all this Wednesday, November 16 at Social Hall SF.
