They might be considered a cult band in their own country, but Belgium’s Slow Crush has been counted as one of the most trendsetting bands in the international shoegaze community for years now. Their effect laden guitar riffs, pounding drums and dreamy melodies are among the best in the business. With singer and bass player Isa Holliday, Slow Crush has a not so secret weapon at their disposible: her voice is like a lighthouse among the sea of noise the band create.
Slow Crush dropped two instant classics with debut album ‘Hush’ (2018) and follow-up ‘Aurora’ (2020). Fans of My Bloody Valentine, The Jesus and Mary Chain and Slowdive can rest easy: the future of the genre is in safe hands. Be sure to arrive early on at Cactusfestival, and let yourself get sucked into the enigmatic world of Slow Crush.
