Langhorne Slim and the Law have been honing their chops on the road for a long time now, and it’s all the more evident in the title track from Slim’s upcoming album, The Way We Move. Slim calls the record “an optimistic breakup album,” and “The Way We Move” says as much in its lyrics:
“You didn’t know it
Now you do
This is the way
This is the way we move”
The track bounces with ragtime piano and horns, and it’s mirrored in the video for this first single, with Slim and his band playing in a boxing ring, an apt metaphor for a breakup itself.
Watch the video below, and North Carolinians can catch Langhorne Slim & the Law next week at the Casbah in Durham, on Tuesday June 12th. (Get there early and catch openers Ha Ha Tonka, who are also getting raves on this tour.)
