Slowly Slowly have just made your day a whole lot better with the release of a beautiful piano rendition of “Ten Leaf Clover”. The pared back piano track comes accompanied with a video that captures the Melbourne four piece doing what they do best; rocking out on stage, and bringing smiles to our faces with big smiles of their own.
The combination of the tender song rendition and footage of great connective moments results in something like a Try Not To Cry Challenge. The band are clearly at home on stage, while never losing their humility and heart. The authenticity is palpable for attendees of their live shows, and the video stunningly hits this home. (Yeah, I’m not sure about you, but I lost the challenge 😭)
The release comes in honour of a second pressing to vinyl of St. Leonards, and is in celebration of the band’s recognition and success after a whole lot of effort leading up to this point. The band are on a high, and wanting to share their appreciation. Best said in their own words:
“We had just ordered the reissue of the St. Leonards vinyl off the back of the best tour of our lives. We wanted to say thank you in some way for all that had transpired for our band in the last 12 months. We invited our friend Sam to come to the studio and it all fell together without any planning—we captured the alternative version that night. For the video we wanted to create a time capsule of the feeling we had when we were finally rolling downhill, after heaving ourselves upward for the past couple of years. To all the people who have cared about the music we make, enough for us to keep the wheels turning—this version is for you. Thank you from all of us at Slowly Slowly.”
Fans of St. Leonards should jump and grab a (PINK!) copy of their album before they run out. Grab yours from 24Hundred. Watch the video below, captured by No Mouse Go.
