Straight out of Chile, the southernmost spot in the world and the country with the strongest pop/rock scene of the Spanish-speaking territories, comes SLOWKISS.
A Santiago-based, English-speaking quartet lead by two sweet-singing girls who manage to combine the noisy darkness of shoegaze with “scream-in-your-face” punk rock and ethereal-sounding pop - in a most original way.
One can easily see SLOWKISS finding inspiration from their love of ‘90s alternative bands including Sonic Youth, Smashing Pumpkins and The Pixies, along with their passion for the post-grunge sounds of acts like The Distillers and Violent Soho.
Their 2015 debut EP ’The Cliff’ was met with rave reviews from tastemaker Chilean music press and radio programmers, and the band supported the release with sold-out shows up and down Chile.
SLOWKISS has been busy recording new material in Los Angeles, and are available for worldwide signing, licensing, publishing, and legal representation.
