After two self-released EPs of exquisite, introspective songwriting – Increases and Increases II – and a youth orchestra-assisted performance at Tate Modern, Slime, aka Will Archer, signed to Weird World, the experimental imprint of Domino records. Curated from almost 400 demos, the 10 tracks that make up debut album Company are a late-night confessional, blurring dark electronica and fragmented instrumentation into swirling, psychedelic pop.
Daniel Brereton's video for Slime’s latest single, “Hot Dog,” tells a tale of British suburban stasis, and follows surreal creations for Kindness, Metronomy and Connan Mockasin. In contrast to Archer's visual aesthetic, the vocal collaborations on Company are much more human, with Belgian soul star Selah Sue and Chicago’s underground rapper Jeremiah Jae sparring with Archer’s shadowy stories.
