slowthai

Sat 28 Aug 2021

What sets slowthai apart from his peers is his distinctive aggrieved sound, a hybrid between Grime in its infancy, and a coarseness comparable to the London Calling era of punk. You could say that slowthai is a quintessentially (vexed) British artist. TYRON, the second album from the Prince of Northampton, was formed against the backdrop of an unforgiving climate where judgement, shaming and underdeveloped and simplistic conceptions of other people are fashionable. Instead of succumbing to such simplicity, TYRON presents an artist who is unabashedly complicated and willing to explore themes of loneliness, identity, self-acceptance, and the difficulties in becoming an individual.
