Swedish indie duo Slide are here with dark new single ‘Laugh Some More’ from their debut EP Happiness which is due for release early 2019. The duo channel the best of the 90s whilst still sounding fresh.
Right from the opening notes it’s clear Slide have quirky charm, and this is proven the more you listen. There seems to be echoes of sad indie like 90s Beck in the lyrics as well as other darker rock influences such as AFI and Alkaline Trio in instrumentation.
Speaking about the track Slide aka Albin Skeppholm and Simon Werner explain, “It’s about having an unhealthy relationship to everything that makes you happy and turning everything into a drug. It’s finding yourself not being able to have a healthy relationship with anything.”
