A joyous return from the full-throttle foursome with a library’s worth of sorely-needed uplifting choruses & fist-in-the-air anthems.

'the joy of the return’ is a cathartic call to arms that takes the dark power pop that defined Slow Readers Club’s earlier releases and then elevates them through immersive soundscapes, driving drums, & infectious guitar lines to create something that is both brooding and relentlessly danceable. Throw in a powerful dose of evocative lyricism and this record is going to be sticking with you for some time. FFO: Interpol, Editors, The Killers & Foals. “The Slow Readers Club are enduring and continue to create ever greater depths and layers to their music to contagious effect.  Musical storytellers for our generation.” 9/10 - XS Noize
