“Magnolia” Slaves

After the release of their third album, Acts of Fear and Love, Uk duo Slaves have released a video, for album track ‘Magnolia.” The song comes just before the pair head out on their biggest UK headline tour to date. Acts of Fear and Love is now available via

“Magnolia” is both a sneering take down of suburban consumerism, as well as a tongue-in-cheek tribute to the bland and ubiquitous paint which has found its way into so many UK homes. The video finds the band – Isaac Holman (vox, drums) and Laurie Vincent (guitar, bass, vox) – indulging their inner painter/decorator, giving the audience a little glimpse into what their life may have been like if they hadn’t pursued their career in music.

Working with previous collaborator, producer Jolyon Thomas (Royal Blood, U2) in Brussels, the band opened themselves up to a new sonic territory. Not concerning themselves with other people’s expectations of what a Slaves album should sound like the band have experimented with their style, without any boundaries; embracing pop song writing and tender moments alongside the more traditional hardcore riffs and scream-along choruses.

The band have just completed an extensive US tour (including playing Cal Jam this month) and are in the middle of a month-long European jaunt before hitting the road in the UK for what will be their biggest run of shows so far, with many of them already sold out and culminating at Alexandra Palace.
