Slow Down Molasses

About This Project

Saskatoon, SK

Hailing from Saskatoon, SK, Slow Down Molasses has been described as “the Broken Social Scene of the Prairies.” Taking inspiration from the vast, open prairies, their music is expansive, texture-heavy pop, layered with squalls of drone, delay and feedback. The 2015 release, “Burnt Black Cars”, was hailed as “drug-drenched psych-pop” by Q magazine, leading the stage on to play with the New Pornographers, Built to Spill, Preoccupations (formerly Viet Cong) and the Besnard Lakes. The band’s third album, “100% Sunshine”, is set to be released in September 2016 on Noyes Records and promises to “forge new sonic territory for the band while retaining their unique hybrid of ’90s Anglophilia and contemporary Canadian rock.” Slow Down Molasses are singer/guitarist Tyson McShane, drummer Jordan Kurtz, bassist Chris Morin, guitarist/keyboardist Aaron Scholz, guitarist Levi Soulodre and keyboardist/singer Jeanette Stewart.
