…a hugely impressive demonstration of Slowly Slowly’s craft. 4/5.”
Kerrang!

“Slowly Slowly truly are the best there is.”
Blunt Magazine

“[Race Car Blues – Chapter 2] is new, exciting, and it’s pushing our concept of what we believe Slowly Slowly sounds like. 9.5/10.”
Wall Of Sound

“Slowly Slowly amplify the vulnerability and realism offered last year… completing the Race Car Blues saga with an album void of insincerity that dances across some darker pop-punk inclinations.”
Hysteria

Australian alt favourites Slowly Slowly release their new album Race Car Blues Chapter 2 today via UNFD.

Featuring adored singles ‘Comets & Zombies’‘The Level’ & ‘First Love ft. Yours Truly’Chapter 2 comes to complete the Race Car Blues story almost a year to the day since the release of the original record in February 2020.

Slowly Slowly vocalist Ben Stewart shares how Chapter 2 particularly captures the heart of the band:

“[It’s] always been the ultimate aim for the band to celebrate the music we love – anthemic heart on sleeve songwriting – but across a broad spectrum of genres. Having no creative ceiling for this project only pushed that ethos further.”

In the lead up to the album’s release Slowly Slowly primed fans with an intriguing spread of singles, sonic shake ups and stylistic choices. Stewart elaborates how this record ultimaltey served as the stepping stone between RCB 1 and where Slowly Slowly are headed next, saying: “Chapter 2 pushes the envelope a little further in every direction – heavier, more pop sensibility and a deeper dive into intimate solo songs.”

This unbridled approach is perhaps most evidenced in the band’s recent music video for ‘The Level’, an outstanding, 70s-soaked effort that completely transports viewers into Slowly Slowly’s unique world. Check it out below.

2020’s Race Car Blues met an acclaimed response, debuting at #8 on the ARIA Australian Album Chart, taking out the coveted triple j Feature Album slot and clocking knockout global reviews from the likes of Kerrang!, Dead Press, Beat Magazine, Tone Deaf, The Music + more.

Alongside the release of its brother Chapter 2 today, UNFD is pleased to feature both albums on a whopping 24-track double LP collection titled “Race Car Blues Extended Edition”. Available as an extremely limited collectors’ item, fans can snag remaining copies via 24Hundred now.
