Norway’s Sløtface have returned with Telepathetic, the first bite of new music from their upcoming sophomore album (details TBA). The band co-produced the new single alongside Odd Martin Skålne (Sigrid, Aurora), creating their boldest and most immediate moment to date.
About the track’s beginnings, guitarist Tor-Arne Vikingstad says, “It was written in approximately two 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.”
Vocalist Haley Shea continues, “The song is about the feeling, usually when you’re growing up, or working a job you don’t like, or other halfway points where it just feels like everything good is happening in other places from where you are. It’s about how ineffectual it is to wait around and hope for things to happen, about how you have to make things happen, but also about the silly fear that if you dream about something it might not happen.”

To celebrate the release of Telepathetic, Sløtface will be headlining London sweatbox Electrowerkz on June 25th, their first UK headline since 2017.
