New Jersey indie rock outfit Afloat released its first new recording of 2020, an anthemic song called “Can’t Slow Down” which, despite having its title annotated with an “*demo” denotation, feels raw and riveting thanks to a powerful mix by singer-guitarist Gabby Relos.

Sweeps of big, tremolo guitar chords lead into the two-minute track, and Relos sings of personal loss, distance from personal trauma, and the way those yearning emotions shift over time: “I felt the change in the air, I knew I wouldn’t see you anywhere.” The song’s tone has one foot in emo-tinged indie, one foot in modern rock, and we’re looking forward to the fully formed version, whenever that gets released.

Listen to the “Can’t Slow Down” demo below, and buy it on Bandcamp today for the streaming service’s latest fee-free Friday.
