2013 was a whirlwind year for the group. After releasing their Daniel Schlett produced single “Magnets b/w Ghosts”, they were named one of Stereogum’s “Bands to Watch” in February.
The group expanded on their concise post punk sound with a wider palette, accentuating the vocal interplay between Julia Farrar and Luke Hunter.
They returned to record again with Daniel at Strange Weather Studios in March. As with the first single, Schlett was able to capture the breadth of the Slander sound- bringing the churning pop of Device and the ever expanding rock sensibilities of Flood into one cohesive package.
