Gritty cool kids Slaves hail from the dull placid towns of Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells -- both part of the garden of England that is Kent -- and attempt to fuck shit up with angular riffs and shouty vocals that suggest a tamer, less coughing 'n' wheezing Sleaford Mods. The Hunter is their new thing and you will like it if you think Kasabian + psych rock = the musical apex.

8/10 Connor Customer review, 30th January 2015
The Hunter is the newest single from Kent duo Slaves, this tune has a dark and catchy guitar riff throughout which is accompanied by some lyrics which are arguably the most powerful we have heard from Slaves so far. The lyrics wouldn't be too out of place in a late 70's punk song, the song defnitely has some punk roots and carries a strong message, speaking out against corruption and greed in society. "We say what we are thinking and that shocks and frightens you", so does that shock you Mr Cameron? It should do.
Making big statements and big songs is what these guys do and as long as they carry on making songs like The Hunter they'll be laughing! They've already had a lot of coverage on BBC Radio One, whether thats a good thing or a bad thing is questionable but Slaves are currently one of my favourite bands and I hope that they are the start of something very big.
