Late Slip are releasing their debut LP I Love You, on June 7th via Party Mermaid Records and DSPs. The album was produced at the hands of Lewis Pesacov (Best Coast, FIDLAR, Nikki Lane, Poolside). Ahead of the album’s arrival, Late Slip are sharing the single “Heart Of Glass.”

Pesacov’s transportive production delivers a nostalgic soundscape with a little bit of twang, a little bit of surf, and a whole lotta heart. Nenni’s sun-soaked, tear-stained gems tap into the tenderness we tend to lock away. I Love You offers the invitation to cozy up close, let your feelings flow, and dance it all away.

Late Slip’s ringleader, Chelsea Nenni, was born on the East Coast but grew up in California. Elvis Presley was her first love and Tom Petty’s “Free Fallin’” her first favorite song. She studied opera in college, but Gwen Stefani gave her the guts to be in a band. Nenni moved to New York City in her mid-20’s to pursue a life onstage.

There she weaved through singing Sondheim, 1920’s jazz, and then, during an especially fierce winter, taught herself how to play guitar. What started as a means to stave off seasonal depression turned into a vessel for big feelings. Now armed with a handful of chords, pangs of unrequited love and homesickness turned into the first Late Slip songs.

Nenni moved to L.A. to explore Late Slip’s potential. Within a week, she landed a job at Amoeba Music, a perfect pathway into the music community. A work friendship led to a recording session with Cian Riordan (Sleater-Kinney, St. Vincent, Beth Ditto, Grace Potter) at Barefoot Studios, resulting in the rollicking Other Men EP (2016).

Faithful Amoeba regular Bobb Bruno led Nenni to Best Coast’s Crazy for You producer, Lewis Pesacov. Super dialed-in to retro sensibilities, Pesacov was a natural fit. His pal, L.A. R&B favorite Nick Waterhouse, soon joined the mix and the three penned “Strike (feat. Nick Waterhouse)” which she recorded for her Reelin’ EP (2020); this trio also churned out the title track for that EP which was released on Party Mermaid Records.
