As the leading lights of Scandicana, the Swedish cousin of Americana, Slim Loris have received glowing tributes from the likes of Huffington Post and Axs. After releasing three albums however the band were forced to take a break due to personal set-backs.
Regrouping in 2017 Slim Loris changed their musical direction by returning to their early influences, from UK 60’s Beat to 90’s Indie. A goal was set to release a new EP every year. The restart was marked by ‘Wild and Untamed’, released on May 2nd 2018.

It was followed in 2019 by EP ‘One kind of Bull’ that takes a step back in time with a more back to basics approach. Co-produced by Pecka Hammarstedt and with another cover art master piece by Emil Grömholm. Slim Loris followed up the release with performances at the IPO festival in Liverpool, UK and Stockholm.
