Victors – Slow Down

“Slow Down” by Victors starts in a way that immediately pulls you in.

A woman says “you know it doesn’t have to be a dramatic line”, as if on the other side of a phone call, before the song really starts. It’s an awesome undermining of songs with similar (yet more dramatic) intros, but the way she says it also carries questions that stick with you throughout the song.

The track starts and it feels familiar in the best possible way (like a beautiful blend of The 1975 with California vibes). The vocals cut through and carry a melody that gets under your skin as the track becomes a bit more minimal, building around the vocals and occasional harmonies.

The chorus is a constant groove that feels uplifting and heavy all at once. It’s a perfect vibe for driving fast down the highway with the windows down.

This song just felt right for me from the moment it started and everywhere it went sonically made sense and transitioned smoothly. The sax solo at the end was the icing on the cake.

“Slow Down” by Victors is an awesome song full of summer drama without ever crossing a dramatic line.
