SLUG

SLUG is the Sunderland-based project of former Field Music member Ian Black.

His debut album ‘Ripe’ was released last month and was co-produced and engineered by former Field Music bandmates David and Peter Brewis.

‘Running To Get Past Your Heart’ is one of the tracks from said album and it’s one hell of a fun track.

Feeling like a cross breed of Beck and the Beta Band, it features beefy bass lines leading us through the song with intermittent drum beats and bongos, the occasional vocal of Black and what almost sounds like a kazoo.

‘Running To Get Past Your Heart’ is a compelling, quirky and whacky track that is just enjoyable to listen to and leaves you wondering what else could be happening on the album.
