Chicago’s Slow Pulp make an excellent early name for themselves this afternoon with their latest single ‘Falling Apart’. Now in their third year, the outfit are gearing up for the release of their debut album Moveys”.

Fresh and cooling to the brain and body during one of the hottest weeks of the year, ‘Falling Apart’ abounds with soft touch guitars and the vaguest hint of violin.
It’s all pulled together by the relaxing vocal of Emily Massey: The wellworn calm that emanates from the tune is remarkable considering that in the past two years, Massey has struggled with Lyme’s disease and chronic Mono, then dealt with her parents being in a severe car crash – all in the global landscape of a pandemic.

“It became easier to stay numb, and create a facade that I was doing ok, than it was to release any type of healthy emotion for a long time. Luckily I did allow myself to have a full on breakdown induced by a stubbed toe and confusion over taxes, sometimes it’s the littlest things that finally get you” she said.

“Why don’t you go back to falling apart? You were so good at that,” Emily Massey of the Chicago-based band Slow Pulp sings. (The group will release its debut album, “Moveys,” on October. 9th.) The atmosphere around her — lush acoustic guitar, lightly brushed percussion and the lulling violin of frequent Alex G collaborator Molly Gemer

“Falling Apart” is taken from ‘Moveys’ – out Oct 09 on Winspear:
