Two years ago we introduced Slow Riot, the Irish band led by singer-songwriter Niall Clancy. Now they’re back with new track titled “Burn in the City” and “Voyeur“. The double A-side single is out now via Straight Lines Are Fine. 

The band expanded to a four-piece after the addition of second guitarist Liam O’Connor (formerly of Fonda). About this: “Liam came to us with the chord progressions and guitar melody of ‘Voyeur’. I liked the contrast between the spectral, somewhat eerie verse parts and the melodic, hopeful chorus”, says vocalist/bassist Niall Clancy“Lyrically I wanted to convey this disparity between hope and desperation and found a similarity in, what can be, the voyeuristic nature of romance today.”
