Melbourne-based pop punk rockers Slowly Slowly have covered the blink-182 classic ‘I Miss You’ for their first Like a Version in years.

Ben Stewart, Patrick Murphy, Albert Doan and Alex Quayle of Slowly Slowly removed some of the more emo-esque elements of the song and refreshed it with a melodic indie take.

“Blink 182 is the fabric that brings our band together, we all have different tastes but Blink is the unifying force behind Slowly Slowly,” Slowly Slowly front man Ben said of the song choice.

The band’s previous Like A Version performance was back in 2019 when they covered Bon Iver’s “Skinny Love” in a live edition in front of hundreds of people at triple j’s Good Az Friday in Melbourne Town Hall.

This time around, the band shared that they felt more prepared and the experience was much less nerve-wracking.

“I feel a bit more prepared this time,” Ben said.

“Today was much less chaotic and more comfortable,” Pat agreed.
