While they may be renowned for sick remixes and heavier material, SLANDER is showing is sensitive side with the duo’s newest single, “Happy Now”. Originally beginning as a collaboration with San Holo, “Happy Now” developed into a Monstercat release verse bitbird.
Using soft melodic synths paired with a pounding bass, “Happy Now” not only hits hard on the emotions, but with the carefully calculated instrumentals. This new single expresses the emotions one has during a turning point in their life, as you look back on the bittersweet past, but also celebrating a rejuvenating future.
“Happy Now” is a surprisingly energetic ballad, finding a home on the airwaves with its catchy riffs as well as huge festival crowds. With its wistful intentions, we can only wish SLANDER the best with his art and embrace this monster single from a deep, dark place. Download their new single here.
