Slim Sly Slender is the Maryland-based singer-songwriter that bleeds creativity. His music is frisky, vibrantly eclectic pop-rock, brimming with earworm melodies, wry wit, literate flair, and playfully ironic. Formerly a visual artist who’s showcased his art in many exhibitions, Slim’s musical aesthetic takes shape through an array of styles, from rock to americana to pop rock and beyond.
His new single, “The One That Didn’t Walk Away,” is a funk rock meets brit pop rock song with a Beatles quality in the vocal layering and upbeat melody. It’s a song about a fictional pair of characters, the narrator being the one speaking to the ‘other’ about being the subject of an unrequited love.
“The ‘you’ that is the subject of song is nonspecific, much in the way of many 60’s pop ballads, and could represent an individual or perhaps be a more generic comment on commitment,” shares Slim. “I have a great appreciation for the singer songwriter pop rock style that came after the so-called british invasion. The simple story telling and catchy hooks of Van Morrison, Ray Davies and the Kinks, Colin Blunstone and the Zombies, et al. has always been one of my favorite musical genres and I ventured to create something in that vein with ‘The One That Didn’t Walk Away.’”
“The One That Didn’t Walk Away” comes from his upcoming album, Pay to Play, where he hopes his music will reach a broader audience. With songs like “The One That Didn’t Walk Away,” he just might.
