Finneas O’Connell, Darius Dudley, David Marinelli, and Robby Fitzpatrick first met each other while performing in separate acts at a battle of the bands. None of their bands won, but they did reconvene as The Slightlys. Based in Highland Park, the teenagers now make an upbeat vibe of bluesy grooves and funky riffs that they dub as “pop ‘n’ roll.” Here’s their latest leaked single, “A Warning,” off their forthcoming debut EP, Go-Getter, which was produced by Eric Palmquist (Bad Suns, Night Riots, HUNNY).
“Now the voice in my head just ignores me.”
The Slightlys will perform on January 14th at AMPLYFi.
