Following on from the reissue of his acclaimed debut album The Sound of Lights When Dim, and the Lilac Lullabies, The Best Days of Our Lives and Night Takes Day EPs, Drew Sullivan presents Ballads for the Boudoir, the last in a series of four new Slow Dancing Society EPs. Each EP has been released digitally, one per month from June to September 2017, with the four EPs released on double vinyl later in the year. All four EP’s in the series are available now via Bandcamp and all good third party digital retailers.
Much like 2014’s The Dusk Recital EP, Ballads for the Boudoir marries SDS ambience with a more sensual, soul-inflected direction, coloured by restrained rhythms, atmospheric sax and warm synth tones. Ballads for the Boudoir has the feel of mid-career Roxy Music, with its romantic, dreamy style. From the downbeat dub-soul of opener ‘An Invitation’ through to the crystalline rhythm guitar work of closer ‘The Melting Sky’, Ballads for the Boudoir is a soft-focus closing chapter to this seductive suite of EPs.
As with all Hidden Shoal releases, Slow Dancing Society’s music is available for licensing (film, tv, games, compilations). Contact Hidden Shoal for more info.
