Stringing together the stunning recent singles from Slowly Slowly, the Melbourne indie faves have today announced their brand new album Daisy Chain, due out Friday 4th of Novembervia UNFD. Pre-orders for Daisy Chain are available at 9 am on the 1st of July.
Set to unveil Slowly Slowly‘s most ambitious and uninhibited selves yet to the world this November, Daisy Chain will also come armed with a brand new sonic palette on vivid display; one soaked in oscillating fragility and boisterous delights that pay homage to the quartet’s stylistic past while firmly linking to their very bright future ahead.
In addition to the announcement, the band have dropped a new track, ‘Daisy Chain’.
“Daisy Chain, I feel, is a culmination point,” shares vocalist Ben Stewart. “It’s a story about how the strongest supports in your life can also be the most delicate. It’s about how lucky I am. It’s about growing up, accepting myself. Life is not linear; it seems for me to be this constant circular process. It’s about the ugly nature of fate and and how if we don’t find the beauty in it we’re doomed for failure. It’s about the process of turning a blind eye to the weakest parts of yourself so you never grow. It’s about hating yourself. ‘Daisy chain, stay the same’ is a mantra for me about keeping the things I care about most front of mind at all times – there is freedom in that. It’s about the golden years, being every year, from now on.”
Kicking off Slowly Slowly‘s fourth studio album, the band’s first since 2020’s Race Car Blues and its accompanying follow-up Race Car Blues Chapter 2 in 2021, Daisy Chain is a perfect entrée to raucous party-starters (Blueprint), slick dancefloor vibes (Forget You), poppin’ bops (Achilles’ Heel) and upbeat emo singalong moments (Longshot) throughout the LP’s 12 tracks.
