A SLOW BOAT TO CHINA
a slow boat to china assembled in 2014 and has since become one of the southeast’s premier original rock groups. drawing on influences from Soundgarden, Kings X, Jane’s Addiction, Radiohead, and Failure, their songwriting style involves textured sonics, haunting melodies and visceral grooves. the songs are a study in contrast - inspired by the old and the new; hard, but fragile; strange, yet somehow familiar. supporting the release of their 2017 sophomore effort, myopic, a slow boat to china continues to gain momentum headlining premier rock venues in the Southern U.S. and is quickly gaining a strong following internationally through radio airplay and social media campaigns. myopic was recorded in the band’s home base of Atlanta with Mike Froedge (Black Label Society, doubleDrive) producing and Jeff Tomei (Smashing Pumpkins, Jerry Cantrell) engineering.
a slow boat to china conjures some of the best retro-rock going nowadays; their latest EP carries numerous bonafide smash singles, including “amores perros” and “myopic”, and the band’s net effect is incredibly rousing.” - Akademia Music Awards [awarded “Best EP Rock”, Feb 2017]
