From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia –

Slow Club is a folk-rock duo from Sheffield, England. The band formed in 2006, after the break-up of Sheffield band The Lonely Hearts.

The band is made up of Charles Watson (vocals, guitar) and Rebecca Taylor (vocals, guitar, percussion). The band has supported other Sheffield contemporaries such as Tiny Dancers as well as Omaha based band and labelmates Tilly and the Wall, who share the band’s alternative, folk orientated sound.
