'Google Maps' is an instant winner.
The third single from Sly Withers’ upcoming sophomore record is fun, catchy and upbeat, but behind its big hooks is a deeper message.
“The track is about having that person in your life who keeps you going when shit gets rough,” Sam Blitvich, co-frontman for the Perth based indie rock outfit, tells The Music of Google Maps.
“For all my struggles with my rocky mental health, I’m really lucky to have a super supportive partner who is the reason I can keep my head above water a lot of the time.”
While it definitely draws influence from the likes The Hard Aches, Hockey Dad, Muncie Girls and more – all of which they’ve supported in recent months – Sly Wither have found their own groove, which makes the prospect of a new full-length all the more enticing.
