Sløtface’s bassist Lasse Lokøy recently shared his debut EP as a solo artist. Titled ‘Can We All Go To Bed’ it lands between a whole host of genres but the title track has landed right on our laps and in our favourite Track of the Day slot.
Played almost entirely on a shorty-bass the track manages to cling to R&B roots while still feeling unpolished and authentic. Lokøy has found himself a niche and it’s one we want to be in. The song comes with a brand new video as well.
He told DIY “The video was filmed in a place called “The Dock” in Bergen, it’s an industrial landscape which constantly moves (shipping containers and cars are always moving and transforming the area). The studio where we often work is based in the dock, it’s always interesting to see something so familiar constantly change, it’s a really inspiring place for making music.
I made the video with Samuel Rud Dale, the aim was to get the aesthetics of the video to be a mix between Bon Iver and Boy Pablo. This live-version is a more intimate version of ‘Can We All Go To Bed’ and I hope people will enjoy this version as much as the original recorded version.”
