Sløtface bassist Lokoy has released his debut solo single.
‘Malibu (Feat. Girl In Red)’ is quite different from his other band’s pop-punk fare, instead exploring more laid-back, electronic bleepy-bloops.
“If you listen carefully, you might hear some familiar sounds from airports and cell phones as well,” he says. “The bass in the verse, which was the first element of the song I composed, is actually a noise I recorded inside an airplane on my way to Bodø in Norway.”
“It’s about a relationship which is harmed by external factors and how those surroundings can complicate a situation that is fairly uncomplicated to begin with,” he adds.
“Sometimes, it’s hard to rise above your position and view things independently, because you will always be defined in relation to your surroundings,” he says, referencing lead refrain “It’s not the height of the man that gives the length to his shadow, it’s the height of the sun”.
