Slow Club

“Beginners” is Slow Club – and Rebecca Taylor – at their best. The arrangement has some force and intensity, but the rumble of the percussion doesn’t over shadow the vocal melody. It’d be such a shame if it did - so much of what makes this song totally heart breaking lies in the way Taylor’s voice inflects on lines like “of all the things to lose / it’s you I choose” and “I know I haven’t got all the answers / if I did I would be screaming them out!” This is clearly a song about complex feelings, and just enough gets spelled out that you can infer a lot more just from the feeling.
