Slowsie’s self-produced debut EP, Late At Night (2020), is a light-hearted collection of songs inspired by songwriter Michael Pearson’s lifelong struggle with insomnia, which came to a head after moving from Los Angeles to Philadelphia to attend university.
The record features Brian Johnson on drums, Jacob Alappatt on bass, and Tomasz Tabernacki on lead guitar.
Slowsie’s romantic, guitar-driven songs harness the sunshine of LA’s beaches and the grit of Philly’s basements; meld them to create an unshakably charming sound. The artist’s influences range from the soothing harmonies of bedroom pop to the uptempo grooves of indie rock, resulting in a dynamic interplay between sonic elements which inspire slow dancing and head banging alike. Irreverent melodies and simple, heartfelt lyrics layered over a a canvas of lush rhythmic elements implore listeners to close their eyes, take a breath, and have a good time.
