Track Of The Day – Sløtface – Telepathetic


Norwegian quartet  Sløtface return with a new tune and video ‘Telepathetic’ the first new music since 2017’s debut album ‘Try Not To Freak Out.’  It’s another engaging slice of pop-punk with spikey guitars and a soaring chorus.  When lead singer Hayley Shea sings “ if you think hard you’ll make it happen , telepathetic, telepathic” you can’t help but feel the band have been reading, ” The Secret ” which essentially tells us, if you think it, and genuinely believe it, it will come to pass. (Alas my own thoughts on Donald Trump have not yet come to fruition)

However, Haley explains “It’s pretty much just about feeling you’re in the wrong place, like a small town or a job you don’t like, and thinking ‘there must be something else.”

Bassist Lasse Lokøy added: “It was written in approximately 2 hours, at 11 in the evening, after a full day of recording. Most of us don’t remember any of it because we were so tired”.

The accompanying video seeks to visually represent that feeling of being trapped whilst hoping for change – as the band explain ” As the song is all about waiting for something good to happen, we thought the idea of statically waiting as a part of the art would be a fun way to showcase that feeling of stasis. We really can’t say enough times how thankful we are to all of our friends who contributed with art and help with the video, they really made it something really fun and special.”
