The new chapter of Sløtface continues in shimmering style with a huge new track.
Sløtface, now spearheaded by Haley Shea, have returned with a new track.
And it’s a proper joy.
The song is called ‘Happy’ and is exactly what it says on the tin, focusing on the pursuit of that very feeling.
It’s wrapped up in a danceable instrumental and plenty of hooks designed to get trapped in your head.
Haley had this to say about it:
“For this upcoming EP the main themes I’ve been exploring are really joy, happiness and all of the opposites of these feelings – what it means to feel happy or content. “Happy” is one of the first songs we finished writing together with the new band who perform the Sløtface songs live and also contribute on most of the recorded music. Tobias, our guitarist, came up with the riff, and he, Nils, Marie, Simen and I just jammed around that in the rehearsal space, which was a positive change after working in a studio setting for a lot of the other new Sløtface songs.
Lyrically, the song is very direct, simple and honest. I was working on how to write about the themes of the EP and thought I’d try saying it as simply as I could. I truly do just want to feel happy. And after a few years of soul searching as to what that could mean, this felt like the most direct way to express those feelings.”
Here it is, get smiling:
It follows on from ‘Beta’ and ‘Come hell or whatever’, which will appear alongside Happy’ on an EP which will be dropping next year.
They sound like this:
