Slowly Slowly – Nothing On

Nothing On is easily Slowly Slowly’s poppiest song yet. With this track, the Melbourne pop-rockers move in a tight, sing-along bubblegum pop direction. I like them all the better for it. Self-produced by front man Ben Stewart, the drums and guitars sound more polished than ever. Mixer Jonathan Gilmore (who worked with The 1975, Nothing But Thieves and beabadoobee before) deserves credits for that as well. Nothing On marks the first taste of new music from the band this year.

Stewart explains this song is about the world stopping and getting the chance to repair things that had gone unsaid or been swept up in the everyday, for some time. β€œI was locked up in a house and for the first time was forced to look at what I had become – how I’d lost the fun side of myself. It’s a nod to the bittersweet nature of the last 2 years. It’s been so difficult and yet such a period of growth. Most of the music I’ve written in this period has an upbeat feel to it in a desperate attempt to remember that feeling. I don’t think I could have handled writing a bleak sounding record and so this song, like many to come, detail very complicated, painful situations housed in fun exteriors. Even if you choose to just scratch the surface, Nothing On is highly addictive. We have been listening to it for months now and we’re still not sick of it.”
