A five-piece indie band based in London, Sloes first came about when band members Jerome and Jo travelled through Colombia and began writing songs together. Paul and Luke came on board shortly after adding rhythm and guitar, followed by Jo’s little sister Katie who provided violin, bridging their electric and acoustic intentions.
A basement in Dalston became home to their early development. Fusing together elements of indie, pop and folk with soaring vocal melodies, ambient guitar lines and rousing hooks, Sloes take the best of their eclectic influences to create one unique sound.
The band’s debut EP ‘Chasing Tails’ is a considered blend of their early work comprising driving anthemic tracks such as the title track and more moody, brooding alternatives such as Devil In You. 2015 looks set to be the year of the sloe… get your gin out!
