Toting a winning formula of Pedro The Lion meets As Cities Burn-style impassioned singer-songwriter material, Slow Bullet’s newest offers 11 tracks sure to leave a lasting impression on the listener. There are mellow moments of careful introspection backed by little more than an acoustic guitar or a simple keyboard melody that are perfectly contrasted by heavier moments of fervent conviction that feel ultra-personal even if they’re not. Touching on the emotional levels and themes of the album, DeBurgh offers the following:

“I didn’t want to write this record from an autobiographical standpoint; I hoped to draw from collective experience and tell a few stories that reflect our common condition as human beings. There’s a lot of falling short, a lot of missed chances, a lot of doubt on the record. The first and last track are about me—the rest are stories in which I think we can all find ourselves if we take a second to be honest and reflect.”

Pre-orders for Still Close Enough To Go Back are available in a variety of formats and bundles through Blood & Ink Records.
