Reliably informed

Silenced Pistol Night Crawlers is, in its way, the tale of a friendship forged in rural Northumberland between two passionate but divergent musicians. Following three years apart, a rendezvous in a Mancunian flat in the summer of 2021 begot this delicious EP, created in only five days.

As Slobo’s acoustic, folk-suffused tendencies encountered Khabs’ dark dub, downtempo production, the two converged marvellously, epitomised by its opening track and first single, To Turn Into Water. An introspective and absorbing song born of a recurrent dream at a deeply personal time, it was released alongside a music video depicting the duo as spacemen exploring the Northumbrian wilderness amidst the destruction of last winter’s storms. Small yet mighty, vulnerable yet indomitable; character oozes from each minute of this wonderful EP.
