Back at the beginning of the year, Slow Club were a band wrongly tagged with some of 
the most undesirable adjectives around; a twee duo cut from the Mumford cloth of rambunctious folk, they had devoted fans but were hardly contenders for any boundary-pushing crowns. Cue ‘Paradise’ – an album that showed the band’s true colours in all their sassy yet soulful glory. Refining their trademark harmonies and raucous energy, but adding a mature depth and a knowing wink, it moved the duo from lovable also-rans to leaders of the pack, and turned Rebecca Taylor into the indie Twittersphere’s newest darling.
