Melbourne rockers Slowly Slowly release brand new track Longshot out today via UNFD. A bustling ode to self belief in the modern age, Longshot also offers another tantalising peek into Slowly Slowly‘s impending new album ‘Daisy Chain’, due out on November 4.

Boasting swirling choruses, stomping beats and sweeping guitars, Longshot is a catchy and sweet emo-meets-pop-punk treat that also significantly showcases the quartet’s sharpened sonic progression as they build towards the release of album #5.

Of the new single, Slowly Slowly frontman Ben Stewart shares: “Longshot is about putting all your eggs in one basket. It’s about that feeling of semi-detachment where you feel replaceable in your own life whilst clinging to some hope there’ll be a win on the horizon. If you scrape the surface I guess it reads like a middle finger to a 9-5 where you’re paying off someone else’s mortgage, but at its core I feel it’s about believing in yourself and sticking to your guns – you might as well put it all on red as we’ll blink and it will all be over soon enough. Everything is stacked against you in modern society, it wants to fall in line and lose that part of yourself, but I truly believe everyone has a creativity about them that makes them feel like the main character in their lives, not just a supporting role. I guess this song is about listening to that little voice, even when it’s hard”.

Beloved for their charm, emphatic rock and significant songwriting prowess, Slowly Slowly have swiftly become airwave and festival favourites, performing at the likes of Full Tilt, Splendour In The Grass, Party In The Paddock and Good Things Festival over the years. And with appearances alongside the likes of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Amy Shark, Ocean Alley and The Story So Far under their belts since first unveiling their debut single back in 2015, Slowly Slowly‘s live shows have become as equally revered as their ability to fuse levity with the profound. Never ones to sonically stagnate, Longshot is ultimately yet another addictive addition to the Slowly Slowly repertoire, and one entirely ready to be shouted along to in a live setting.

And some fans will have the chance to catch Slowly Slowly onstage over the next few weeks, with the band currently on the road as part of their 17-date regional Australian tour. Set to close out the extensive array of shows with visits still to come for Darwin, Ballarat, Canberra, Cairns, Townsville and Mackay, act fast to catch Slowly Slowly doing what they do best: melting hearts and rocking out when they roll into a town near you – TICKETS HERE.
