Slavve is the duo of guitarist/vocalist Chuka Chukuma and drummer Marcos Marchesani, formerly of Weird Wives and Surfer Blood. The duo has played together in various projects since growing up in West Palm Beach, Florida, but recently relocated to Brooklyn. With Slavve, their philosophy is to make everything bigger and louder and, trust us, they had no problem doing just that in the studio. With hardcore undertones to their post-punk howl, they make uniquely cathartic music. Here, they play some tunes and talk to Travis about growing up and playing music together since their childhood in Florida.

Featured song: “Pity Party”
