S/T debut EP out 7/13 via Mirror Records
For Sydney sider Joe Jackson, the line that separates where she ends and Sloan Peterson begins is a blurry one. Although only 23, Sloan Peterson is the second band Jackson has formed and fronted. Having moved in with her sister at age 16, she forged her taste for music through involvement in the DIY art scene of Sydney, where she was living at the time. She spent years recording music through her laptop, filming homemade music videos, sifting through dusty records searching for lost gems with friends and lovers as they came and went from her life. It was there she started her previous band Black Zeros and began making a name for herself.
Now, she returns as Sloan Peterson: a love child of ‘50s guitar pop and modern garage rock, bursting with a warmth that’s inseparable from her private identity. Influenced by everything from Elvis, to Latin legend Xavier Cugat, or the fashion statements of Nancy Sinatra and Bowie – Sloan Peterson is the sum of these influences that adds up to so much more.
