Album Review: The Slow Readers Club – 91 Days In Isolation

Posted on 03 Nov 2020 at 8:13am

It seems prescient to be reviewing this album in the week the UK enters another lockdown.

For those of us old enough to remember the first lockdown, it was a time of great uncertainty and fear. Others took the bull by the horns and made the most of the opportunity – as you will have gathered by this album’s title.

They may have released an album only in March, but as The Slow Readers Club’s avenues for promotion were all closed off, the Mancunians weren’t as idle as many of us. In tandem with using social media to their advantage for listening parties and livestreams the band also, using the wonders of modern technology to their advantage, shared ideas and wrote songs online before taking to the studio once restrictions were eased.

As one would expect with an album written during an unprecedented (sorry) period, themes of isolation, anxiety and reflection pervade.
