Chicago's Slow Mass has a simple guiding principle: "No shortcuts."
Formed in 2015, the band released their debut EP Treasure Pains, offering up an expansive new take on both post-hardcore and indie-rock. The band toured in support of the EP with the likes of mewithoutYou, The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die, and Pianos Become the Teeth.
On Watch—their debut LP—expands Slow Mass' sonic palette in service of creating an ambitious, uncompromising album that never adheres to a single genre. It deserves a place alongside other classic albums like Fugazi's The Argument and Unwound's Leaves Turn Inside You, becoming the latest in a long line of records that push a genre forward by remaining focused on creating a cohesive, expansive work.
