Slum of Legs are a queer, feminist noise-pop DIY band. They are Alex, Emily, Kate, Maria, Mich, and Tamsin. Slum of Legs write songs about ghosts, architecture, gender, loneliness, and hair envy. You can dance to all of them. Sometimes they sound like The Shaggs, Slant 6, and La Düsseldorf playing at an impromptu party in space. One of their songs is a live séance. Slum of Legs have performed on a Norwegian mountain and in many, many basements. They like pylons and onstage pile-ons. They're interested in modernist architecture, art. and literature. Slum of Legs use collage and cut-up in their artwork and this also reflects the fractured nature of our songs and how the six bandmates, who all bring completely different influences to the band, have been stuck into a blender with the controls jammed. They are a giant pop-psych, punk monster with twelve legs. Their songs are melodic and dissonant, anthemic, and experimental. Slum of Legs' self-titled debut album is a manifesto for compassion and defiance in a confusing, unrestful world.

Praise for Slum of Legs: "a kind of fiendish exploratory outsider pop music that recognises no limitations... weird, dissonant, home-made, different from anything you'd make." --Stereo Sanctity; "an enticing bunch, fusing influences ranging from riot grrl, classical and krautrock." --Drowned in Sound; "a six-headed eruption of disillusionment and reality checking... ready to take on everyone and anyone." --Collapse Board; "the post everything band you didn't even know you'd been waiting to hear." --Impose Magazine
