slenderbodies Kick Off Headlining U.S. Fall Tour Supporting Debut LP “komorebi”
neo dream-pop duo slenderbodies are kicking off a headlining North American Fall tour with a sold-out set at San Francisco’s Rickshaw Stop. The tour, in support of their debut LP ‘komorebi’ (out via Avant Garden Records), will run through October. Playing at their biggest venues to date, slenderbodies will finish with a victory lap in California with another sold-out gig on October 23rd at The Troubadour in Los Angeles. The tour boasts additional sold-out stops in Seattle, Denver, Salt Lake City, Portland and Rough Trade NYC in Brooklyn and follows a celebrated Lollapalooza debut earlier this year.
slenderbodies debut record, ‘komorebi’ was largely recorded and conceptualized in the natural oasis of an isolated cabin. Max Vehuni and Benji Cormack, the two names behind the duo, have created a surreal fusion that explores and pushes the limits of electric guitar, fusing them with breathy vocals to craft slinky, soothing walls of sound.
“belong” speaks to the feeling of wanderlust that permeates this album, while tracks like “dewdrops” and “arrival” speak to meditations on home amidst the experimental vortexes of sound slenderbodies have made their signature. The silky-smooth 11-track collection is steeped in self-reflection, exploring the ebbs and flows of friendship and romance while weaving in a deep connection to nature.
