Slow Pulp Share Glitchy “Slugs” (yeule + Kin Leonn Remix), Announce Fall Tour Dates



Called a “fuzz-swaddled love song” by The FADER, Chicago quartet Slow Pulp is sharing a glitchy and catchy new version of their song “Slugs” today, remixed by the Singapore artists yeule and Kin Leonn. Listen to it below.

Listen to “Slugs” (yeule & Kin Leonn Remix):

“I have love love loved Slow Pulp for a long time, I’m so happy to work on this remix for them, they are inspiring in so many ways, and their music helped me through some really hard times,” said yeule of the collaboration. “When I heard the new record, I couldn’t stop listening to Slugs. Both Kin Leonn and I put a lot of love in this remix, one of my favourite tracks off the new record.”

yeule is the Singapore-born, Los Angeles-based nonbinary musician, performance artist, and painter also known as Nat Ćmiel. A chameleonic auteur, yeule is guided by a multidisciplinary ethos through which they craft entire worlds and personas through their music – often in collaboration with Kin Leonn – weaving together everything from the classical canon, hypermodern internet cultures, academic theory, the esoteric, and their own carnal desires.

First self-releasing songs at age 14, they have since emerged as a cult art icon, whose experimental pop songs of emotional excavation and self-reclamation have attracted a dedicated following of fellow outsiders who seek catharsis from physical and mental struggle. Their most recent album softscars is out now via Ninja Tune.

Kin Leonn is an artist and producer from Singapore who releases ambient music under KITCHEN. LABEL. His original scores for the documentary ‘Baby Queen’ and feature film ‘The Breaking Ice (燃冬)’ premiered at the 2022 Busan International Film Festival and 2023 Cannes Film Festival respectively. Possessing a versatility beyond his years, he maintains a strong presence in Singapore’s thriving underground as live act, composer, sonic artist, and mix engineer. Kin Leonn has designed numerous sound installations – notably for Singapore’s ArtScience Museum, London’s Architectural Association, and Singapore Art Week.

Called “one of 2023’s best rock records” by Variety, Slow Pulp are continuing to tour in support of their breakout album ‘Yard’. Through listless guitar, a raw-to-the-bone piano ballad, and belt-along worthy pop-punk, Slow Pulp tackle themes of isolation and the process of learning to be comfortable with yourself, along with the importance of learning to trust, love, and lean on others. The result is a lightning-in-a-bottle synthesis of what has made Slow Pulp one of the most beloved indie groups in recent memory.

Currently on tour with Death Cab for Cutie and The Postal Service, Slow Pulp will then embark on a summer tour of Europe followed by newly announced US dates in November that go on-sale this Friday at 10 am local time. yeule will be performing in Europe as well, beginning later this month and into early June. All upcoming dates are listed below.

Praise for “Slugs”:

“Slow Pulp’s ‘Slugs’ was made for that hazy and sweet late summer crush.” — NYLON

“[‘Slugs’ is] the kind of song that displays the quiet confidence of a band that knows what they’re doing: There’s no roaring show-offy hook, just a satisfying hum that dissolves into a chorus that [is] sticky and sweet.” — Stereogum

“Against distorted guitars, an infectious hook is sung lazily and memorably” — Uproxx

“Gentle and insistent, a sugared, summery indie track made unique by blink-and-you’ll-miss-it glitches and a distorted backing track.” — Paste

“[‘Slugs’] combines their hazy slacker rock with warm, effervescent hooks.” — Consequence

“A fuzzy, sun-soaked mid-tempo track with understated vocals.” — BrooklynVegan
