Could they be the UKs answer to The White Stripes? Charles And Rebecca Are Slow Club. They hail from Sheffield and are a sort of one man band. Only with two people. He strums guitar and sings and she plays drums and all sorts of weird instruments, like water-filled glass bottles, spoons and the back of a wooden chair. And sometimes an organ called Miles. Not something you get to see and hear every day. The effect is rockabilly and somewhat folksy but thankfully their songs are fairly jolly affairs without a bit of teenage angst in sight.

"Slow Club are another boy/girl duo but instead of valium'd-up rock n'roll they make sacharine folk-pop that turns your usually miserable scribe into a radiant ray of positivity." - The Fly Ones To Watch

"In a city still jam packed with derivative monkey bands, Slow Club stand out. Call them 'folk' if you must, but songs such as 'Sunday' and future single 'Me and You' are so gut-wrenchingly beautiful that the term sells them short. No, singing percusionist Rebecca and guitaris Charles are more than folking troubadours, they're a musical revelation. Tonight in a jam-packed theatre 'Sumer' is pure heart-bursting pop, propelled by odd absurdist chair and table thwacking. Equally brilliant is debut single 'Because We're Dead'; imagine Nico playing with Bob Dylan if they were raised in Sheffield. Don't call this club Slow, call it special" – NME
