Who doesn’t love Slowly Slowly? Being avid fans of the boys since their early days, we vibe particularly with their catchy pop-rock melodies and new single ‘Forget You’ sounds like quite the charm! The song builds on the four piece’s ability to pen pleasant rock tunes with simmering pop sensibility.
It follows on from February’s release of ‘Nothing On’, which the band are midway through touring at the moment. Vocalist Ben Stewart shares:
“This song feels obvious in its intention, but what you may not assume is that it is actually aimed completely inwards – it’s about forgetting past versions of myself, not someone else. As we all often are, I am constantly navigating my tornado of neurosis. This song touches on the notion of ‘okay starting again frommmmmmmm….now’ – how we convince ourselves it’s a new day, but when you zoom out it’s the same cycle every time. I retain hope, but often, unfortunately, am quick to write all attempts off as futile.”
Despite those incredibly infectious sing-along lyrics of “I gotta remember to try and forget you…”, it’ll take more than a lifetime to forget about these boys. That’s a promise!
