The song appears on WISH’s self-titled debut full length, released August 2014 on Hand Drawn Dracula. WISH features the aforementioned Kyle Connolly on vocals and guitar, joined by Peter Gosling on drums, Emily Bitze on bass, and Josh Korody on guitar.
Next up for the Toronto four-piece is a performance presented by the Heretical Objects Cooperative for the opening night (January 16) of Come Up To My Room, the 10-day annual alternative design extravaganza held at The Gladstone Hotel in Toronto.
“Slacker” employs hypnotic, lithe guitars, effectively blending melody with distortion over a motorik beat. The video, which follows the band’s Kyle Connolly during a magical aquarium tour, was directed by Luke McClutcheon.
