Northern NSW-based producer Willaris. K has returned, sharing his new single Slow Down. The atmospheric release brings together beguiling vocal acrobatics atop a two-step beat that unfurls to reveal the musicians techno-based prowess.
“Slow Down has been a bit of an escape for me. It’s the song I’ve been most drawn towards working on when things were feeling heavy, because it existed in a place outside of the live show - where my music usually existed." the musician shares.
"I remember we were working on music not really getting anywhere, went to the pub for a beer then came home and started playing around with a weird beat with a weird vocal which became the start of Slow Down. It existed as a minute long loop for a while but every time I came back to it, it grabbed me. Tom recorded a bunch of vocals and it just sat on my laptop for a while, at the time it stopped before the last section and I always saw it as some sort of interlude but whenever I came back to it grabbed me.”
Directed by Bonnie Moir and created with producer Sarah Marcuson and cinematographer Max Walter, the songs visual follows actor Thomas Weatherall (RFDS, Heartbreak High) as he experiences emotions of delusion and paranoia. "We wanted to create a sense of dread and foreboding, hinting at a menacing presence that lurks behind the thin veneer of civility." Moir says.
