‘Slipper’ is the sextet led by Melbourne bassist Alastair Watts, featuring his compositions and arrangements, that make use of a rich palette of timbres to create the band's beautiful timbre. Utilising a front line that incorporates trumpet, alto and bass flutes, and bassoon, and a rhythm section that employs numerous effects, Slipper's sound is more than the sum of its influences however indicative of its goals those might be: electronica, metal, slow-core pop, and the music of Latin America. Currently recording their first album, Slipper is getting ready to tour in 2017.
