‘Nil By Rote’ exposes the wonderful duality and underlying playfulness within The Slow Beings’ music. From the charming sway of the verses to the triumphant defeat of the chorus, the song injects the indie-rock form with sublime new life. Epic yet intimate, ‘Nil By Rote’ feels like an instant classic, exuding welcoming familiarity from the very first listen without ever sounding derivative.

“Perhaps the first real highlight is the strong, powerful nugget ‘Nil By Rote’…brilliant melodies” – PopMatters review of WKWTEM
