Slow Club are now ten years old.

Charles and Rebecca are intent on growing old disgracefully, though, plunging head-first into fresh projects.

New cut 'Ancient Rolling Sea' points the way forward. A slow-burning, country-influenced ballad, it finds Charles crooning: “I'll always be by your side...”

“This song felt as though it just did not want to arrive for a long long time,” Charles says of ‘Ancient Rolling Sea’. “I worked on the music for the whole time we were writing, and the words just landed at the last minute. With the approach I took on lyrics I wanted it to be more conversational. I wanted it to be direct, as if it were being whispered in your ear.”

Produced by Matthew E. White at his studio in Richmond, Virginia, you can check it out below.

Slow Club are set to release their new studio album later this year.
