Slander and the Next Single
After their debut single “Magnets b/w Ghosts” garnered some media attention, the band decided to head back to Strange Weather and Daniel Schlett to record the next single “Flood b/w Device”. 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.
The single was recorded and mixed in one ten hour session on Sunday 24 March 2013.
Device and Flood receieved some kind words:
ctindie.com said: “Everyone’s favorite female fronted high energy band is back with a new single, device b/w flood! Slander pack even more punch in these two new songs!”
stereogum said of the Device video: “Recent Band To Watch-ers Slander have perfected the seedy motel room video. Their clip for “Magnets/Ghosts” was a display of ascendant eeriness. This time around, they ditch black-and-white and opt to use a similar dingy locale for something a little saucier, splicing select scenes of salaciousness with ones of the band playing a sunny outdoor set.”
