Norway’s Sløtface are back with double A-side ‘Beta’ / ‘Come Hell Or Whatever’.
It comes alongside the news that Haley Shea will now be leading the band, with Lasse and Tor-Arne leaving to focus on new passions outside the group.
Speaking about new track ‘Beta’, Haley says, “‘Beta’ was the very first song Mikhael and I worked on together in his studio. It should be listened to while wearing sunglasses, even on cloudy days!
“The song is about wanting to connect with people on a deeper level, but feeling like social media sometimes gets in the way, with things becoming somewhat intimidating, shallow and superficial. The song is a confidence booster for myself where I’m trying to be cooler than I am. It was written at a time when I really, really missed the rush of playing live, and I needed to find some of that spark and edge in myself that only really comes out on stage.”
