Slow Violence started as a project conceptualized by Nick Reetz while living in the Bay Area. The idea was to create a No Wave-inspired band that takes cues from various bands (some of which have been associated with that label, some who have not) that exist in a space between genres. Primary influences include Swans, Sonic Youth, Melvins, Boris, the Birthday Party, and Oh Sees. He carried this concept to Portland, OR where he began writing songs in collaboration with Remy Fransen.
