They’ve been teasing us for weeks and just as we thought we couldn’t contain the excitement anymore, Slowly Slowly finally released their new single ‘Blueprint’ and we’re in love. It follows on from the extraordinary Race Car Blues; Chapter 2, released earlier this year, and is filled with more of the same undeniable charm and the gnarliest hooks.
Frontman Ben Stewart explains how ‘Blueprint’ originated after a party with his nearest and dearest just before COVID last year. He describes the complete elation at having so many of his loved ones in the room, and how the track immediately flowed out of him the following morning.
“There was no awkward small talk, no drugs needed to stimulate conversation (granted there was booze), but I’ve got a feeling it was mostly the blistering loud music and the fact we hadn’t all been together in so long. Honestly my house was destroyed the next day, but strangely it just reminded me of what it means to come home to something,” he shares.
“Throughout lockdown that feeling of elation completely faded into a distant memory. This song then became something we planned to release after the harshness of it all had blown over — a party track that could become somewhat of a “fist-in-the-air’ moment after realising what we’d all been fighting for.”
