When live music was a real presence within our daily life’ First to Leave, Last to Go’ was getting its first sight of light, the record had already become a favourite in the live set list for Sleuth and this was the catalyst that convinced them they needed to release this as a firm single in the future.
Sleuth have also built up a great list of supporting acts appearing with artists like Quasi, The Wombats, Gaz Coombes, Mark Morriss, John Bramwell and appeared at the International Pop Overthrow Festival at the Cavern in Liverpool three consecutive years now.
‘First to Leave, Last to Go’ has a slightly new direction and style in its recorded format, it has more potent synths and electronic beats with the layers of the record, but at the same time maintaining the identity of the bands back catalogue.
Full of contemplating shadowy moments that draws you into a dream-like state the track has a dramatic theatrical display which draws intrigue from the listener. Then the vocal display provided the sight of the hypnotist and culprit of this show. The change of tempo and different layers within the song is a treat to your ears, Sleuth can be happy with their polished record and we look forward to hearing what comes next from this band.
