Chicago-based band Slow Pulp, will release their debut debut album Moveys, on August 9th via Winspear. During the recording, the band dealt with health challenges, personal upheaval, and the pandemic. The songs on Moveys were writen while on tour with Alex G in 2019, after the band scrapped an album’s-worth of material following Massey’s diagnosis with Lyme disease and chronic Mono. The obstacles only continued from there, as Massey’s parents were soon after in a severe car crash…one week before COVID-19 shut the country down.

Ahead of the release, Slow Pulp have shared the lead single “Idaho.” Written on the road during tour-induced disorientation that led Stoehr to confuse their gig at Colorado College for a show in an entirely different state, “Idaho” bursts to life with shimmering guitars and Massey powerfully singing about the mental health hurdles that come with accepting love, “I’ll keep on holding out for the downside / Before I knew why.”
