about

In the EP 'Move', The Sloth was forced to go flat hunting, but found a mysterious manuscript whilst clearing out his old house. Now in the new album, ‘Origins’, we open up the manuscript…

400 years ago the alchemist Aengus Rudach was accused of witchcraft, but escaped across the ocean. He was caught in a storm and swept up on an unknown island. After struggling through dangerous forests, Aengus found the Island’s two inhabitants—the Master of Mind, an expert psychologist, and the Master of Matter, a scientist and inventor. Aengus convinced the two to combine their work using himself as a test subject, hoping to create the perfect conditions for human life. The results didn’t go as planned—in the search for perfection, he was transformed into a blissfully static Sloth.

Sloth Metropolis Glasgow, UK

The Sloth of the Metropolis
Woke up from deep sleep
In a flat in a familiar town
With familiar streets

Now he explores the city
Waking everyone he meets
