Slow Down, the latest from DC indie-rockers The 5:55, is an energetic swing-groove that makes sense of the wash of emotions and conflicting messages that come from navigating the path forward through school, work, friends, and family.

Tomorrow belongs to the youth of today, and this song can be taken as something of a warning - not to be too restive, nor too patient; and above all, to connect to a sense of personal identity. With a classic 4-piece band-mojo and a live sound that has made them a fan-favorite on college campuses all over the east coast, The 5:55 give us a party anthem that pulls no punches.
