Manchester Evening News
"The Slow Readers Club are quite simply too glorious to be kept a secret; see them, be seduced and then pass the pleasure on."
"Think New Order and Depeche Mode with all the catchiness of a cool indie band, and this gives you some idea to what they’re about. Definitely one of THE bands of the moment!"
"The Slow Readers Club are without doubt on the cusp of something spectacular and if you haven't immersed yourself in their indie electro sounds by now, then it's high time you paid attention"
Louise Dodgson - CityLife Extra
"We are extremely excited about these guys here at XFM and Forever In Your Debt is always playing on our big indie jukebox"
