Today’s Featured Artist – INTERVIEW – Slomo Casino

Tell us about:

Your latest single you have released:

Our first single “Marshmallow” comes out 17/09/21, Which is the title track of our debut EP. We chose this one as the first track to put out as it demonstrates what we’re all about. It’s an absolute anthem and if you’re a fan of bands like Blossoms and Gengahr you should enjoy what we’ve got in store.

Your first single and how you felt when it was released:

Very much can’t wait to experience this feeling!!

Your favourite song that you have created that is an EP track:

 Jack Batchelor – My favourite song we’ve created is a track called Balloon, it’s a romantic, ballad style song about wanderlust and it was written from a very honest place. It features gentle soaring melodies and its general sound is reminiscent of “Sparks” by Coldplay.

Your favourite song to play live:

Our single Marshmallow is super fun to play as it’s full of energy, happy vibes and is a great sing along track. We’ll be playing it at our homecoming show in Manchester on November 6th!

Your most emotional track:

‘Balloon’ as the ballad on our EP I’d say is the most emotional.The sentiment behind the song came from a feeling of wanting to get away, the lyrics were written when I (Jack) was very hungover, I think this probably helped release my inhibitions a bit and just write how I was feeling in that moment.

The best lyric you have ever written:

“You’re just a wind-up merchant selling someone else’s joke.” From our track ‘Stuck In The Middle’ which will feature on our EP.

Describe the feeling you get when you walk on stage to do a show:

Indescribable, literally.

The hardest track to play live:

Jonny – The vocals for ‘Origami’ (which will be featuring on the EP) are the most technical vocally as they do a lot of switching between different registers. It was one of those where we recorded it, loved how it sounded, and then thought: Hold on, now we’ve gotta figure out how we’re actually gonna play this thing!

Essential items you always take on tour with you?

Jack – Although we’re a new project we’ve both have toured with separate bands extensively over the past few years. One thing I always take with me is my GameBoy Colour and the old school Pokemon games, really helps pass the time in the van.

Jonny – I would also say Nintendo Switch, Audio books and Vitamins!! The body can only survive on Greggs for so long..

Describe your fans in three words:

Patient, oblivious, lucky.

A song by another artist or band you wish you had written:

Thong Song by Sisqo.

What we can look forward to from your band this year:

Our first single release is on 17/09. We’ll then be putting out more singles before the full EP comes out on 12/11. And anyone that’s free we’ve got a home show in Manchester at The Eagle Inn in Salford on 06/11/2021. Soon after we’ve got some acoustic tracks and covers of some of our favourite tracks to come, all in 2k21!
