VIDEO OF THE WEEK #144 - SLAUGH - TEARS By Loz Etheridge · On 31/12/ 2019
"Slaugh wants to bring us all together and work towards a common goal that will give everyone - the forgotten people, the disenfranchised, the criminally ignored and the down and outs - a real chance at life, no matter what creed, colour, sexual orientation or religion they are. 'Tears' is one of the most politically astute tracks you will hear in 2020 and beyond, packing more awareness into its 4 minutes and 2 seconds than most bands manage in their entire career".

SLAUGH - SINGLE REVIEW TEARS By Listen with Monger -On 05/01/2020
" 'Tears' has a beautifully blended laid-back melody and skittish beat that is held together by the insistent and smooth flow of Slaugh. When we get to the chorus, we are treated to Slaugh's soulful vocal but don't be fooled, this is a track that takes on global atrocities, injustices like Grenfell Tower and shows off a strong moral and philosophical compass. British and African influences are all there in the mix, but I think Slaugh has a sound all of his own and there is more meaning in these lyrics that you get on an entire NOW compilation".

Single Review Slaugh ‘Tears’
"Either side of each over-smoothed chorus, verses get soaked in soft rapid fire wordplay. While rhythms get wrapped up, condensed and compacted, every sound comes out clear and unblemished. I dig through the pictures Slaugh streams through. We see the rise of the right and a frightening tide of separation and violence that threads through us all - from borders drawn inside and out."
