Joesef unveils new single ‘It’s Been A Little Heavy Lately’

“I wanted the song to feel like a bad trip”.

After returning with September single ‘Fire’, Joesef has unveiled his newest track ‘It’s Been A Little Heavy Lately’. “I wrote ‘It’s Been A Little Heavy Lately’ about how I tend to make bad decisions when I’m down, and to be more specific it was giving into the advances of someone I’d been with previously, while they were in a new relationship,” Joesef explains. “I wanted the song to feel like a bad trip, there’s a lot of different textures; the tempos are higher, and the drums are slightly swung. It also features a sample from the film Totally Fucked Up by Gregg Araki: the stories he tells, and how he portrays them visually inspire me every day, and fit the context of the song so well, I had to write to him for the sample clearance and he said yes which was fucking mind blowing to me, he’s a hero of mine.” Check it out below.
