New Music: Slightest Clue – Zipper

Vancouver, Canada-based indie rock band Slightest Clue have featured on the blog a couple of times now. I first discovered them in March this year thanks to their track Just Fine, before following that up with a share of Look At The Way She Goes a few weeks later. Their latest Zipper sees the band heading in a raw and heavy direction with their sound.

Zipper started its life as a demo by bass player Sean Ries so naturally there’s a big bass elements to its composition. It opens bold and fuzzy before drums and guitar come in. It’s a track that drives, channelling influences from White Stripes and compatriots Death From Above 1979. The call and response vocals are the icing on the cake.

I was a fan of Slightest Clue before, but I’m really digging the direction they’re headed in. I can’t wait to hear what they do next!
