Slothpop bridges the gap between airy Pop experimentalism and trippy Folk populism with a sonorous cello, a flittering violin, guitars that range from delicate to dense and hauntingly ethereal vocal harmonies that drift into your consciousness like the tide. Fronted by the ephemeral- yet earthy-voiced Kristin Newborn and counterpointed by the incredible Lauren Eison, Slothpop will offer up a metric ton of atmosphere with tunes slated for its imminent debut full-length.
