Discovery: Slowpoet

Slowpoet, aka Joel Carless, goes spring-like with his new track Early Bloom.

By Graeme Smith

Joel has something of a choirboy-like voice as he delivers the chilled out Early Bloom. However, the track has a bit of a twist when a distorted Pet Shop Boys-esque spoken word kicks in towards the end to discomfort you. It’s a clever take on the sometimes vacuous indie electro genre and the listener is all the better for it.

You may know Joel as part of his former band Fitz. He’s now striking out alone as Slowpoet and we’re digging his stuff. Check out Early Bloom below.
