12 Step Program: Slow Crush

The 12 Step Program – we asked all our bands to give us 12 songs that influence them, inspire them or that they just really love – and if possible give us a little story to go with it.

Our indie shoegaze stars Slow Crush released their magnificent EP “Ease” on LP and CD in 2017 and that did not go unnoticed! A spot on Roadburn Festival and a ton of support shows and a European tour are just a few things this band already achieved over a short period of time.

When we asked them about the 12 songs, this is what we got back.

SLOW CRUSH:
Really hard for us to choose only 12 songs; our music taste is really eclectic, ranging from doom/death/stoner-metal to minimal techno or electronic ambient and everything in between.

We’re all open minded punk kids.
But maybe these 12 bands influenced us the most for Slow Crush.

From the fuzzy raw energy of Nirvana and Bikini Kill to the groovy grainyness of Cloakroom and HUM.
The floaty and spaced out soundscapes of bands like Tropics, LSD and Grouper.
Multilayered guitar haze warmth of My Bloody Valentine and Whirr.
Damn good pop songs like Big Star and the noisepop from Deafcult.
Mumrunner for being amazing and future touring buddies!
