ARCANE ROOTS will release their huge, brand new single, ‘Slow’, on May 20th through Play It Again Sam. Following the free download track ‘Resolve’, ‘Slow’ is the 2nd single to be taken from the outstanding debut album ‘Blood & Chemistry’, which will be released on May 6th on download, CD and gatefold vinyl. 

 

 

Andrew (Groves, guitar and vocals) explains a bit about the meaning

 

behind the song: “Slow is a reminder of what you have and what it means to you. Even when you take something or someone for granted over and over again. It was one of the first songs written for ‘Blood & Chemistry’ and it also took the longest to complete and record. This long and difficult process actually ended up serving the song perfectly by making each section of the song chronological to the lyrics. Every time we revisited the song again we added new parts and I amended the lyrics to become more relevant to my feelings at the time. It now reads like a story from having to be reminded of what you have and the spark between you, to finally admitting what your actions had been telling you all along and finding the spark again.”
