After premiering as part of triple j’s “Quarantune” series, Slowly Slowly are delighting fans with the official release of ‘Melbourne’.
As a Melbourne artist and local, Slowly Slowly frontman Ben Stewart was drafted by triple j to dream up a special “Ode to Melbourne” track to commemorate the city’s tough time in lockdown. Not only that, but the challenge involved taking listener requests on what to include in the song and turn it around in just 24 hours.
“Since I accepted this mission I’ve been marinating on all things Melbourne. I miss all of it, warts and all, so it’ll be nice to have something that encapsulates that weird see-saw of missing gigs and also missing walking around without a mask,” Ben said of rising to the challenge.
