With a brand new EP set to arrive in February, Sløtface are sharing their brand new single ‘Happy’.
“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,” Haley Shea explains. “‘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.”
