The Slaps are a Chicago-based lo-fi slacker pop trio. They write chilled out basement bangers with loose, patient vocal movement and slowcore sonics. The group consists of Rand Kelley, Ramsey Bell, and Josh Resing. Formed in 2016 while attending DePaul University, the band has toured with fellow Chicagoans Manwolves and has shared the stage with nationally and internationally recognized acts like Omni, Good Morning, Lunar Vacation, Franz Ferdinand, Jon Bap, pinkcaravan!, and many others. The Slaps are currently at work preparing to release their next full-length album, which will be available in Spring 2022.
