Wildcard (week 26):
Slothrust – Once More For The Ocean

2021 was off to a good start when American band Slothrust released their first single of the year, Cranium. Following sophomore track Strange Astrology they now serve up Once More For The Ocean. Itโ€™s arguably the catchiest of the three and a great set-up track for the bandโ€™s sixth album, set for a 10 September release.

Indie rock anthem Once More For The Ocean doesnโ€™t waste time shifting into gear. Itโ€™s quickly out the starting blocks with an upbeat intro and doesnโ€™t slow down. Well it does, just after the 2 minute mark, but the intermezzo basically serves as a potential future stadium break.

Front woman Leah Wellbaum says about the track: โ€œThis song felt like it was handed to me by the ocean. It came to me when I was sitting on some rocks and staring at one of my favourite oceans in the world, on Star Island off the coast of Rye, New Hampshire. (โ€ฆ) It is about the search for a greater consciousness in times of chaos. For me that feeling of oneness often shows up when I am spending time in nature.โ€

Once More For The Ocean by Slothrust is the new Carte Blanche Music Wildcard and will feature here prominently for a whole week.
