Australian rockers Slowly Slowly have revealed their new cut “Comets & Zombies”. Marking a taste of what’s to come from the band in 2021, “Comets & Zombies” flows between pulsing verses. And a pared back chorus with classic Slowly Slowly fragility and vulnerability throughout.
Frontman Ben Stewart shares that the track was loosely inspired by the story of an acquaintance and his fiancé who passed away from drug addiction issues. “Despite the self-destructive loop they found themselves in, I could see they maintained an unbreakable adoration for each other”, he says.
“I think there is something tragically beautiful about the love between people who are burdened with a self destructive predisposition… I was really inspired not by the circumstance of their passing, but by their beautiful love for each other. It was palpable and timeless in an almost “Romeo + Juliet” like fashion. It’s yet another song for the pile of ‘love conquers all‘”.
