Los Angeles-based quartet SLUGS first appeared back in 2018 with their EP, “Cool World“, a record that caught the attention of many blogs, and saw the band share stages with the likes of Jessica Lea Mayfield, The Districts and Let’s Eat Grandma. Since then things have gone a little quiet, which all changed last month, when they returned with a brand-new single, “Super Sane“.

Citing influences from Linda Perhacs to The Oh Sees, Slugs are not a band easily pigeon-holed, with a sound that flutters from the sweetly melodic to the riotously energetic. Super Sane is probably the band at their most restrained, as washes of burbling electronics and gently meandering guitars create a gorgeous backing for vocalist Marissa Longstreet’s impassioned vocal delivery.

This is a song of sweet juxtapositions, at times it feels intimate and insular, the next fierce and strong-willed, as it seems to muse on ideas of healing and finding a path to acceptance of your lot. While plans for the year ahead remain as yet unconfirmed, there’s enough here to hint that the return of Slugs is a reason to be very excited about whatever is coming next.

The first time I saw them they hit me hard on how good a band they are people did not believe the hype but they have the songs the style and the musicianship I just love these sisters. “Don’t Save Me” a song by American rock band Haim.  The song was released in the United Kingdom on November 8th, 2012. It was featured on their debut studio album  “Days Are Gone” , released in 2013.

I gotta be honest here. At first, I didn’t understand why everyone loved HAIM so much. But, that was before I even knew what they sounded like. I listened to a few of their songs and that unintelligent opinion rapidly changed. I was immediately starstruck and envious of their badass, “screw you” attitude and thought they were so awesome, from their punk/hipster fashion sense to their fun, bubbly personalities. These three sisters have really sprung up out of nowhere in my opinion and really cultivated a distinct, unique sound fast. They’ve had such a busy year – they’ve performed on numerous festivals, had a gig on Saturday Night Live, and a debut album

Days Are Gone

– that seemed like it happened all at once. For some reason, I’ve always loved sibling bands. There’s a pure connection that is rarely seen with other bands. It almost makes me wish my…
