SLOWLY SLOWLY SHARE MUSIC VIDEO FOR “JELLYFISH“
AUSTRALIA TOUR KICKS OFF NEXT MONTH
TICKETS AVAILABLE NOW
Australia’s Slowly Slowly have shared the music video for their single “Jellyfish“. Following the release of the single, it spent time as the #1 most played on Triple J. Today the four-piece are finally lifting the lid on the music video, and it is every bit as playful and infectious as their adored tune. Fans can watch it below:
Since the release of the single, the band toured alongside Amy Shark, and now have a headlining tour across Australia kicking off next month. Tickets can be purchased here: http://bit.ly/2MSLX0M
Following a goofy, knock-about couple at a bowling alley, the video is a charming, humorous and heartfelt slice of some of Slowly Slowly’s best storytelling.
“It came together so easily and we spent the whole day laughing,” front man Ben Stewart said. “As soon as we laid the music over the top of the video it immediately brought out the sentimentality of being in love and not giving a fuck what anyone else thinks.”
“I think at surface level you hear the Jellyfish line in the chorus and you think ‘oh this is a dicky little song about the ocean,'” he continued. “But if you dig a little deeper you realise it’s a song about perception and how love looks on a nihilistic backdrop – how we can pull each other out of spiralling inward. I still like the playfulness of the song though and I wanted to keep that in the video.“
The inimitable “Jellyfish” marks the first taste of new music from the anthemic punk-rockers since their revered 2018 LP St. Leonards. Seizing the band at their most vulnerable and uninhibited, the track playfully toys with questions on love and existential dread in downright catchy fashion. With Stewart’s masterful lyricism front and centre as always, ‘”Jellyfish” has proven to be both one of the most endearing and commanding tracks of the year.
