Back with a glimmering piece of gothic electro-pop, The Ninth Wave are back with new track ‘Happy Days!’, the title track of their forthcoming new EP!
“’Happy Days!’ is a song of ups and downs,” the group explain. “At its core, the lyrics shine a torchlight on the murky highs and lows of life. We wanted to make something harsher and more direct than songs we had written before, and this came together relatively quickly. The flow of the song really captures what we were trying to get across with the lyrics: there’s a rumbling undertow throughout the whole song, interspersed with ethereal ambient sections and culminating in big nasty crushing beats. We were all agreed that this should be the first song from our new EP to let people hear, and hopefully they’re not frightened away.”
Produced by Faris Badwan of The Horrors, the ‘Happy Days!’ EP is set to land on 17th July. Listen to the title track below.
