Yay, you’re back! Welcome to BTRtoday’s Discovery Corner podcast brought to you by, Levi’s.
This week we listen to Slothrust & chitchat w/ front-woman Leah Willbaum!
Comprised of Leah Willbaum (vocals/guitar), Kyle Bann (bass), and Will Gorin (drums), Slothrust came together while attending Sarah Lawerence University. There they were each able to individually explore all kinds of different genres. Willbaum tells BTRtoday that they participated in blues, jazz, jazz vocal, hip hop, and even a chamber improve group. This has greatly influenced their work and can really be detected in their music.
This past October they released a new full-length album on Dangerbird Records entitled, Everyone Else. Tracks vary from sad to wily and everything in between. All provide a fast beat with soothing vocals, hard hitting drums, and melodic guitar riffs that really get you feeling and squealing!
Listen to hear what Willbaum has to say about music, traveling, and choreographed dance moves! Make sure to check out Slothrust on all their social media outlets to keep up-to-date on where they’re playing next and what they’re cooking up for your listening pleasure.
