Slum of Legs are a feminist noise-pop DIY band. We write songs about ghosts, architecture, gender, loneliness, good hair and many other important topics. We are Alex, Emily, Kate, Maria, Michelle and Tamsin. Long-awaited eponymous ‘queer feminist noise pop’ debut album from the Brighton-based Slum of Legs, a self-described ‘giant pop-psych, punk monster with twelve legs’. In their own words, “a manifesto for compassion and defiance in a confusing, unrestful world.”, gender, loneliness, good hair and many other important topics. 

Slum of Legs are a queer, feminist noise-pop DIY band. We are Alex, Emily, Kate, Maria, Mich and Tamsin. We write songs about ghosts, architecture, gender, loneliness and hair envy. You can dance to all of them. Sometimes we sound like The Shaggs, Slant 6 and La Dusseldorf playing at an impromptu party in space.

One of our songs is a live séance. We’ve performed on a Norwegian mountain and in many, many basements. We like pylons and onstage pile-ons. We’re interested in modernist architecture, art & literature.

We use collage & cut-up in our artwork and this also reflects the fractured nature of our songs and how the 6 of us, who all bring completely different influences to the band, have been stuck into a blender with the controls jammed. We are a giant pop-psych, punk monster with twelve legs. Our songs are melodic and dissonant, anthemic and experimental. The Fall meets The Raincoats in this noisy, bloody minded, defiant, lo-fi collage art-punk. Absolutely brilliant, up there as Album of the Year 2020 with Torres & Porridge Radio.

Our debut album ‘Slum of Legs’ is a manifesto for compassion and defiance in a confusing, unrestful world. As Slum of Legs are currently scattered across continents, we couldn’t film a video all together, so synth player EK put together this little homemade vid out of photos and gifs, featuring ‘Benetint & Malevolence’ from our forthcoming self-titled LP.
