The Slow Readers Club follow their 2020 Top 10 album æThe Joy of the ReturnÆ with the release of their new record æKnowledge Freedom Power. æKnowledge Freedom PowerÆis a sizzling synth-rock beast of a record akin to White Lies, Muse and modern-day Bloc Party, and a rallying cry of emancipation, both stylistically and socially. ItÆs a righteous punch of the air, a surge towards the future. Frontman Aaron Starkie says, ôThe world had got so bleak it felt a little indulgent to paint apocalyptic pictures when they were out in the real world. I thought people would probably want to hear more uplifting things, it was my intention to be a bit more positive. ThereÆs still a lot of melodrama in there and itÆs still dystopian in places but thereÆs more positive shades in this record.ö That positivity powers to the fore with the albumÆs lead single and title track, an instantly addictive hybrid of the bandÆs new pulsating synth style with their anthemic alt - rock roots. As much as the record finds The Slow Readers Club channelling a brighter spirit, thereÆs no dumbing down of their famously ferocious and insightful lyricism. A beam of hope shines throughout æSacred SongÆ : part in the form of a spiritual saviour, but also embracing the power of love as a force for good, something which can also be achieved by the friendship and community spirit infused in æLay Your Troubles On MeÆ. Yet a darkness still looms large, whether it's within the warmongering satire - and ultimately individual powerlessness û of æSeconds OutÆ or the steady march of automation over the human workforce on opener æModerniseÆ æKnowledge Freedom PowerÆ is the bandÆs sixth album and the latest giant leap in one of the greatest self-made success stories in recent British rock history.
