After teasing fans with curious advertisements on socials over the last few weeks, Australian favourites Slowly Slowly have finally revealed their iconic new single and music video Blueprint today.
From its pulsing verses to its electric chorus, Blueprint, mixed by Jon Gilmore (The 1975, Beabadoobee), is born to be a head bang-worthy festival crowd favourite. Filled with unique lyrics and musical touches, the track displays a familiar Slowly Slowly dipped in a refreshing new light.
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.”
