Laurence and the Slab Boys are a noise-pop collective based in Manchester-via-Berlin-via-Glasgow. Their sound is a lyric-driven sonic-tapestry of fuzz-guitar, dulcet feedback and contorted, echo-soaked vocal harmonies.
Debut album, Lo-Fi Disgrace (released June 2012), was recorded during the harshest Berlin winter in memory. Its songs are layered with tape-effects, haunting found sounds and abstract electronics. Live, the band strip back and fill any gaps with a more primal guitar adrenaline.
Lo-Fi Disgrace has already received repeated airplay on Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music (Steve Lamacq / Tom Robinson). The band will play a handful of festivals over the summer, before returning to the studio to begin work on their next record.
