SLAVVE is a two-piece band from West Palm Beach, FL. Though they have since relocated to Brooklyn, the duo has deep roots in the music they’ve always loved. Started as a home project the band fully formed in the summer of 2013, Chuka recruited drummer and childhood friend Marcos Marchesani, former member of Weird Wives and Surfer Blood, to make everything bigger and louder.
SLAVVE can be heard in full effect on their self-titled EP on Bloodmoss Records that was remarkably recorded in just two days. In an effortless mix of punk, post-punk, screamo and hardcore, SLAVVE’s self-titled EP spans issues of intrinsic uncertainty (“Better Half”), the strange pride of being alone (“Pity Party”), deception and frustration (“In Your Dreams”), and the futile nature of trying to make something work when it just doesn’t (“Out of Mind”).
