Slowly Slowly are an Australian pop punk and indie rock band, founded in 2015. The band consists of four members, with Ben Stewart on lead vocals and guitar, Patrick Murphy on drums, Albert Doan on guitar, and Alex Quayle on bass guitar.

The fast-paced “Justine Go Genesis” is modern and retro at the same time.
Many artists tried this technique over the years, but most of them didn't get it right ("most of them", based on my experience so far; maybe I should dig deeper ... ).
However, this epic single feels like a genuine reunion of different musical subgenres and multiple style choices from the last decades (especially the 90s).

The melody for "Mood Ring" reminds me of "Pocketful Of Sunshine", by Natasha Bedingfield, though it's not as elaborated as Natasha's song. Maybe it's an intentional tribute, considering the lyrics.
All in all, it's a decent single in comparison to "Stoned At The Nail Salon" and "Solar Power".

“Lately I feel EVERYTHING” is a pretty decent pop punk/alternative rock album for 2021.

There are some tracks where Willow wrote the lyrics all by herself. “Lipstick” is the best example; here, Willow proves that she can be a great lyricist. She should definitely write her own lyrics more often.

Tracks like “XTRA”, “Come Home” and “Lipstick” showcase Willow’s strongest vocals on this project. I hope that her future albums ... read more
