Run Home Slow, the new album from The Teskey Brothers. Run Home Slow is the highly anticipated follow up to their much-loved 2017 debut Half Mile Harvest. Starting with Let Me Let You Down featuring the all shuffling rhythm and guitar stabs coated in Josh Teskey’s era-defying, honeyed croon. Over the next ten wide-ranging songs, The Teskey Brothers more than deliver on the promise of their first record, Half Mile Harvest, and manage to pull off a feat that has eluded many other bands: they’ve followed up a breakthrough debut with an album that not only pushes their music in new directions, and in the process solidifies their sound into something truly theirs, but they’ve done it without sacrificing any of the charm and authenticity that endeared them to their audience in the first place.
"We were really aware that we didn’t want to alienate fans,” drummer Liam Gough says. “We love our fans and feel really proud of the first album, but the second album needed to be a step up.” To help them navigate this process they enlisted the help of producer Paul Butler (Michael Kiwanuka, St Paul and The Broken Bones, Andrew Bird) who flew in to work with the band at their home studio in Warrandyte, Victoria. In Paul, The Teskeys found a mentor and critic who would allow them to progress sonically without losing the raw simplicity and space they had achieved on Half Mile Harvest
Largely written over the last two years, while relentlessly touring the world in support of their debut, Run Home Slow finds the band in a contemplative and reflective mood. In Run Home Slow, The Teskey Brothers have made an album that honours their past, resonates wonderfully in the present and looks forward to a continually brighter future.
