about

The track is an upbeat pop-rock jam that belies the song’s soul-searching theme. Singer/guitarist Collin Steves explains, “The song is about realizing your life is a mess, and taking some time to figure out how to get it in order.”

“Slow Down” is a clinic in channeling vintage rhythm & blues grooves into the kind of swaggering modern indie rock that deserves to be playlisted on college radio throughout the nation. Classic organ tones, slinky guitar licks, and an airtight rhythm section back Steves’ self-assured vocal delivery to create a irrepressible toe-tapper.

lyrics

Slow down, where you got to go
Oh, draggin' ain't my way
I, need to find my soul
Slow down, things I ought to know
Oh, elected my delay
I need to find my soul

Yeah I think that I mastered the motion
Gettin' lost and I'm stuck in the notion
That I'm right and the answers are all the same
Here I am at the edge but I won't stop
Light it up, rippin' shots, now I got too far to walk and all my friends took my keys away

Slow down, where you got to go
Oh, draggin' ain't my way
I, need to find my soul
Never in the moment gotta
Slow down, things I ought to know
Oh, elected my delay
I need to find my soul
Soul

Yeah they say that I'll know when I see her
Scared her off but I feel that I need her
But the rules in the world keep me rushin' that way
Now I'm stuck in a job that I once had
Back in high school but now I'm a post grad
Dress it up to my friends like I don't need a break
And I feel like I can roll up, face it all and be ignored
Cuz I'm stronger every time, it's gettin' old

Slow down, where you got to go
Oh, draggin' ain't my way
I, need to find my soul
Never in the moment gotta
Slow down, things I ought to know
Oh, elected my delay
I need to find my soul
Soul

Yeah I think that I mastered the motion
Gettin' lost and I'm stuck in the notion
That I'm right and the answers are all the same
Here I am at the edge but I won't stop
Light it up, rippin' shots, now I got too far to walk and all my friends took my keys away

Slow down, where you got to go
Oh, draggin' ain't my way
I, need to find my soul
Slow down, things I ought to know
Oh, elected my delay
I need to find my soul

Da, Da, Da...master the motion
Soul
