Downtempo / Electronic / Indie-Pop
slenderbodies’ music is imbued with an air of mystery and familiarity. Equal parts warm blanket woven from downtempo coos and a venture into a land permeated with foreign lovers, sultry nights, and lost romance, to listen to slenderbodies is to give yourself over to their hypnotic whims and wonder. The Los Angeles-based duo wrote, recorded, and produced their debut album, sotto voce, over the span of a month and 380 miles. And maybe that begins to provide the first explanations for slenderbodies otherworldly, expansive sound.
Kicking off 2019 with a new EP, soraya, their at-times psychedelic, ethereal, and unconventional sound is poised to carry them to unknown places in the years to come.
