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. It’s arguably the catchiest of the three and a great set-up track for the band’s sixth album, set for a 10 September release.

Indie rock anthem Once More For The Ocean doesn’t waste time shifting into gear. It’s quickly out the starting blocks with an upbeat intro and doesn’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: “This 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. (…) 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.”

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