Slowly Slowly Return With Anthemic New Single ‘Gimme The Wrench’

Slowly Slowly have returned with their first taste of new music in almost two years. Dubbed ‘Gimme The Wrench’, the band’s new single takes inspiration from the iconic Good Will Hunting scene that sees Will choose the wrench over the stick and belt.

Produced by Courtney Ballard (5 Seconds of Summer, Waterparks, State Champs) and mixed by UK heavyweight Jon Gilmore (The 1975, Nothing But Thieves), the track began as a concept in the mind of Slowly Slowly frontman Ben Stewart, who wanted to write an ‘Eye Of The Tiger’-esque pump-up anthem for himself as he was heading into a highly stressful period of life. 

Slowly Slowly – ‘Gimme The Wrench’

 “I knew that for the foreseeable future I would be spinning plates across multiple projects, family, touring and I wanted a song that would pump me up for it,” the artist explains in a press statement.

“There’s obviously a lot of reward in stretching out of your depth, and the metaphor of choosing the difficult path, when there are obvious ones of least resistance, seemed to resonate with me.” 

‘Gimme The Wrench’ arrives as Slowly Slowly are gearing up to embark on their first ever tour of the UK and Europe, supporting fellow Aussie act Stand Atlantic, and we’re told it also heralds the first taste of a brand new record on the way.

For now, you can take it for a spin up above.
