Slothrust have released a new, grunge-inspired tune called “Once More for the Ocean.”

The song will appear on the Los Angeles group’s upcoming fifth album, Parallel Timeline, dropping Sept. 10 on Dangerbird Records.

Featuring trademark killer guitar riffs from bandleader Leah Wellbaum, “Once More for the Ocean” seemingly came straight from her soul.

“I have a unique relationship with this song because it felt like it came through me more than from me, though I recognize that really there is no difference,” frontwoman Leah Wellbaum said in a statement.

She added, “It is not the easiest song to sing or explain. At times I even wondered if it might be suited for a different artist. However after sitting with it for a while I have come to the conclusion that this song was meant for me and it is about the search for a greater consciousness in times of chaos. For me that feeling of oneness often shows up when I am spending time in nature.”
