SLANDER is notorious for creating hard bass music, but they show a fraction of their sensitive side on “Happy Now,” their newest release on Monstercat. “Happy Now” is a bittersweet, nostalgic ode to the blissful times of a broken relationship; SLANDER embodies the feeling of wistfulness with cinematic basslines and airy melodies that complement its overall emotive tone. Basshead fans will still dig the sheer power of the track while its gentler construction may gain some new fans for the successful duo. On “Happy Now” and their prior release “I Can’t Escape,” (in collaboration with SAYMYNAME) SLANDER have been experimenting with different sounds, proving their ability to metamorphosize while still maintaining their authentic sound.
For a chance to hear “Happy Now” and more party-starting beats live, catch SLANDER on tour, as well as at Gud Vibrations Boat Party during Miami Music Week on March 22.
