The Slacks to play WOMAD

Taranaki band The Slacks have been announced to as part of the 2018 Line Up for WOMAD.

The Slacks is a four-piece formed by brothers Scott and Mark Armstrong.

The sound of the band has been described as folk-rock slapped about the face by country and the blues with a dusting of Irish-ska. 

Their recent release, Big Aroha, was filmed in a local 4-Square and struck a chord with ex-pat Kiwis and schools all over Aotearoa - the video going viral on Facebook and the YouTube video clocking up nearly 60,000 views.
