Ahead of the release of their new album ‘Cavalcade’ The Slow Readers Club return with a new single ‘I Saw a Ghost’. The Manchester based four piece produce brooding and mesmeric indie electro, drawing comparisons with Interpol, The Killers and The National and their new single is one of their most powerful offerings yet.
Vocalist Aaron Starkie wrote the song about depression. He explains “It’s about appearing to have a normal happy life but carrying something with you that can descend at any moment and make everything appear bleak.”
