Slum of Legs are a queer, feminist noise-pop DIY band. We are Alex, Emily, Kate, Maria, Mich and Tamsin. We write songs about ghosts, architecture, gender, loneliness and hair envy. You can dance to all of them. Sometimes we sound like The Shaggs, Slant 6 and La Dusseldorf playing at an impromptu party in space.
One of our songs is a live sÃ©ance. Weâ€™ve performed on a Norwegian mountain and in many, many basements. We like pylons and onstage pile-ons. Weâ€™re interested in modernist architecture, art & literature.
We use collage & cut-up in our artwork and this also reflects the fractured nature of our songs and how the 6 of us, who all bring completely different influences to the band, have been stuck into a blender with the controls jammed.
We are a giant pop-psych, punk monster with twelve legs. Our songs are melodic and dissonant, anthemic and experimental.
Our debut album â€˜Slum of Legsâ€™ is a manifesto for compassion and defiance in a confusing, unrestful world.
Praise for Slum of Legs:
"a kind of fiendish exploratory outsider pop music that recognises no limitationsâ€¦.weird, dissonant, home made, different from anything you'd make". (Stereo Sanctity)
â€˜an enticing bunch, fusing influences ranging from riot grrl, classical and krautrockâ€™ (Drowned in Sound)
â€˜a six-headed eruption of disillusionment and reality checkingâ€¦. ready to take on everyone and anyoneâ€™. (Collapse Board)
'the post everything band you didn't even know you'd been waiting to hear' (Impose magazine)

£16.99Feminist post-punk from Bristol played by 4 women in their pants. Spunky as hell. Recorded in 5 hours at Bristol's Invada Studio.Visit product page →
This is a sound forged in the crucible of hospitality jobs and in some cases the womb, these four women are bound by laughter, humour, and a shared need to process whatever the fuck is going on in the world right now.
Shunning virtuosity in favour of vociferousness, they dance around in their pants singing songs of joy and confusion at each other â€¦.and one of Louder Than War's 50 new bands for 2019!Â
