Australia’s most endearing punk rock band, Slowly Slowly, have released their new single “Creature Of Habit Pt.2“.

We love any band who can work the phrase Ollie Ollie Oxen Free into an entire song, and make it as energetic and fun as Creature Of Habit Pt.2

Front-man, Ben Stewart describes the new track as a cheeky exploration of emo sub-culture that emerged after the release of their album, St. Leonards, when the singer-songwriter started questioning the mentality behind his creativity.

“I started analyzing my own behavior after releasing ‘St. Leonards’ as I honestly wanted to change my mental processes towards being creative. I always thought I had to earn it by punishing myself mentally. Throughout this period, I started to trust my instincts a little more and back my gut feelings,” he says.
“I’ve usually been someone who constantly looks outward for feedback, I assumed everyone else knew better. I guess this song is a bit of a gee-up for Slowly Slowly. I wrote it to signify us stepping into our own. The line ‘olly olly oxen free’ refers to when the game has been won/is over and it signifies to everyone to come out of hiding. This sums up where I am mentally at the moment, I’m so proud of this band, thankful for our fans and excited about the future.”

 Slowly Slowly will soon embark on an upcoming Australian tour, which spans mid-October to early November. A list of tour dates can be found below.

You can usually find me traveling, queuing, or at barricade for a band. I am most likely doing all three things in a day. If I'm not at a concert you can also find me digging through crates for that coveted black disc of vinyl.
