Running In Slow Motion is an album of contradictions, a darkly emotive synth-pop record, Owing as much to the influence of The Beach Boys as Alan Vega. Simple 4-track production sits in juxtaposition to complex high-pop songcraft. Rough edges cut through beautiful, layered melodies. A multi-instrumentalist and devotedly DIY, Claire wrote, played and recorded the entire record herself, with the exception of a striking cover of Randy Newman’s ‘Pretty Boy’. It’s real catchy too.
