Wrapped in a dreamy, electronic soundscape, Margot’s playful voice is a gentle nudge to take a step back from everyday headaches, “let go just a little” and remember to watch out for yourself. It’s a lesson that life has probably taught us once or twice a day, but somehow we still need to hear it!
Created in collaboration with producer Frank Slimm (Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Maevis and more), “Slow Down” was actually shelved for months, while the two were working on other music. Luckily for creatures with ears, it came back to life with new lyrics, and a perfect pop song was born.
Of “Slow Down”, Margot says:
“The song itself is about self-care and self-love, taking time out of the day to look after yourself and enjoy the little things – and to remind myself that the time I spend working on myself is just as important as the time I spend working on my career.”
Margot’s personal story is multi-faceted. She’s originally from Paris, but started working on “Slow Down” while living in Berlin. Now based in London, Margot has added a new chapter to her life story which also includes learning to play both the violin and piano, and listening to everything from opera to Rage Against The Machine. Expect neither theatrical high notes nor screaming hard rock, though; inspired by the likes of Erykah Badu, H.E.R., Rihanna and Frank Ocean, Margot has found her right place in pop music, which we’re thankful for after losing our hearts to “Slow Down”.
This is a first listen. “Slow Down” is officially out everywhere on September 25th. You can pre-order the song here.
