A new chapter for Slotface begins with the news that the band is now Haley Shea’s only creative outlet, with Lasse and Tor-Arne leaving to focus on new passions.
But that also means brand new music is also here.
This comes in the form of a simple double A-side.
The main track is ‘Beta’, a song written in collaboration between Haley and producer Mikhael Paskalev
The result is a slick, intriguing and infectious piece of alt-pop wonder.
Haley had this to say about it:
“‘Beta’ was the very first song Mikhael and I worked on together in his studio. You have to listen to it wearing sunglasses, even on a cloudy day!
“The song is about wanting to connect with people on a deeper level, but sometimes I feel like social media gets in the way, with things getting a little daunting and superficial and superficial. The song is a confidence booster for myself where I try to be cooler than me It was written at a time when I really, really missed the rush of playing live and needed to find some of that spark and that advantage in me that really only comes out on stage.
And then there’s ‘Come Hell Or Whatever’, which continues the trend and builds on it beautifully with erratic drum patterns.
