Why Don’t We Serve Up Summer Vibes With 'Slow Down' Music Video

Why Don’t We's new music video has us wishing it was summer again.
On Friday (December 18), the five-man band — Jonah Marais, Corbyn Besson, Daniel Seavey, JackAvery and Zach Herron — surprised fans with the visual for their latest single “Slow Down,” a lighthearted track about knowing when things are moving too fast in a relationship that continues to change its course.
In the video for the song — which samples The Smashing Pumpkins’ 1996 track “1979” — the boys hit the road together before cooling down by the pool party at a house party.
“I think we need a little California 'cation/ We took a shot at this, but maybe we're too wasted/ It's hard to swallow, but I know we've gotta chase it,” Seavey sings over a sweet pop production before Herron brings the message home in the chorus: “Slow down/ I think that we just need to slow down, slow down/ Turn around/ Things were so simple way before now, ‘fore now.”
“Slow Down” is the band’s newest single to release since they marked the end of their hiatus with “Fallin’ (Adrenaline)” and its follow-up, "Lotus Inn." All three tracks will appear on Why Don't We's sophomore studio album, The Good Times And The Bad Ones, due out on January 15.
“These last few years have been an absolute whirlwind for us. From moving out to LA as a band and touring the world, to falling in and out of love, and now being locked inside for months... Life has been amazing, and equally tough,” the band shared in an announcement in November. “You have to do your best to make something beautiful out of it all, so that's what we did. We put everything into this album. We hope it helps you enjoy the good times and push through the bad ones.”
