San Diego based trio The Slashes are known for their enthralling blend of post punk, shoe gaze rock, and goth pop. The band has returned with a Smith’s inspired new single “Valentine Slip” which beautifully encompasses all of these diverse musical influences.
With “Valentine Slip” moody echoing vocals hover over clashing guitar riffs and driving bass lines for a haze filled stunning musical dreamscape. The existential song is “about accepting our true nature, the duality of the good and bad in this character, with one side winning eventually and giving in to his true self” confides Esteban Rene of the band.
The Slashes are Esteban Rene (vocals/guitar), Beto Bautista (bass), and Carlos Robles (drums). Founded in 2015, the trio have built a dedicated following and were nominated for the best rock band by the San Diego Music Awards. The band are known for their dynamic live performances and relatable and intoxicating rock releases.
