With their eagerly-awaited new EP landing next month, Sløtface have now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming release.
The new single 'Nose' follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Beta', 'Come Hell Or Whatever', and 'Happy' in previewing their new eight-track collection 'AWAKE / ASLEEP', which is set to be released on the 24th February via Propeller Recordings.
Speaking about the new offering, band leader Haley Shea said, "'Nose' is what I would call a pretty general “Sløtface anxiety” song, a recurring theme I always come back to. Nose is a conversation between me and a loved one where I’m trying to use imagery to describe what anxiety feels like to someone who doesn’t experience it, how even the smallest things can trigger it and send me into a thought spiral that feels impossible to stop. The choruses are then the replies of someone I love reminding me to breathe, a tactic which usually helps me calm my thoughts, when done in the right way, by my partner, family and loved ones.
"'Nose' started when I visited Odd Martin at his studio in Bergen in March of 2022 to write some songs. It ended up being a super-productive couple of days where we wrote about 7 different demos on the first day alone, and then chose a couple to flesh out on the second day. "Nose" was the last song we tried out at the end of that second day.
"The mix of the heavier, rhythmic, bass-focused verses and the big, layered, poppier choruses, all combined with saxophonist Aksel Rønning adding some extra spice, grit and depth to the whole track makes it one of our absolute favorites on the EP."
