This blog could be mistaken for an ode to this band, and rightly so since the inspiration came from the always endearing and affable lead vocalist Benny Stewart haha.
On a serious note though, Aliens is the newest single from Slowly Slowly and after many repeated listens I can guarantee the certified brilliance behind it. The opening notes showcase Ben’s beautiful softer vocals which slowly lead into some of the heavier, louder and more intense lyrical passages then I’m use to but that’s exactly why they deserve your attention. There is obvious growth both musically and lyrically from their debut release ‘Chamomile’ but they still retain the essence of who they are as band and this is something that I personally look for, respect and admire in the music I love. The lines ‘ You get so sad and you get so high &, you won’t change but you keep on trying..’ have been stuck in my head for days and will definitely be stuck in yours too. Here’s the fun official video and the absolutely lovely piano vocal version released earlier today.
