Slow Release – Cover (Acoustic Home Demo)

Below is my acoustic version of the song ‘Slow Release’, originally by [52] Teenagers.

The much-missed [52] Teenagers were a Manchester band who Optional Wallace played with on many occasions. Neil Wright joined us on stage to perform ‘Can’t Explain’ at Manchester Academy 3 when Wallace (along with Dutch Uncles) supported 52s for the launch show of their single 3AM.

‘Slow Release’ was my favourite of the 52s’ songs, and I wanted to record quite a different-sounding version, something I think can be done with all great songs. This recording was made at home with my guitar, keyboard, mobile phone and free home-recording software. Hope it does the song and band justice.

You can hear the original version of ‘Slow Release’ here:
