Do you remember those times around the lake with your friends? Drinking beer on houseboats, soaking in the sun and hooking up? Melbourne indie rock band Slowly Slowly do. At least if you listen to their latest single “Jellyfish”, a throwback to pop-punk influenced rock that found its way on a dozen late 90s teen movie soundtracks.
“Jellyfish” is all bubblegum melodies, hooky choruses and sweet sunny vibes, a song frontman Ben Stewart says is;
“about that out of body experience you get sometimes when you are looking at the world. Sometimes everything just seems so ridiculous – the concept of existing, being in a body, our interactions with feelings and emotions and this wacky 3D landscape we walk around on from day to day which we tell ourselves is normal”.
Squint a little and that means it’s about getting drunk on a houseboat with your friends.
