Back in September, Glide contributor Christian Long had this to say about the new album from indie pop group Superhuman Happiness:
“There’s not a lot of bad things to say about Escape Velocity; the crisp, clean production lets the eclectic arrangements alternate between instruments as they move in and out from one another. A precise work of art, it has the feeling of a mirror broken into a thousand pieces, then put back together to see a more than a reflection staring back at you. A sort of lush, fractured reassembling of 70s techno-prog and 80s synth-pop, but without any visible seams.”
He ultimately summed up the album as “one of the most fulfilling and satisfying listens in recent memory.”
Out of the same studio sessions that produced Escape Velocity came the groovy, chilled out tune “Landslide”. The band is releasing the song as a single and we are excited to present the exclusive premiere of this catchy new tune right here on Glide Magazine.
Superhuman Happiness front man Stuart Bogie has this to say about the song: “’Landslide’ is a song we put together a while ago with the idea of releasing it around the winter solstice, when its darkest out and people tend to look inward. I wrote the song while I was staying with my friends Colin Stetson and Sarah Neufeld at their home in the woods up north. The lyrics are about loss and the desire to walk on even while your heart still weighs heavy. It is an unusually sentimental song for Superhuman Happiness and exposes a tenderness seldom explored by the band so far.
It features bandmate Eric Biondo on vocals/piano and close friends of the band, Grey McMurray on vocals and guitar, Miles Arntzen on drums, Mathew Scheiner on guitar/bass/engineering, Andrea Diaz as a one woman choir, Michael Fatum on trumpet, Ray Mason on trombone, Jas Walton on Bari sax, Dana Lynn on violin, Yair Evnine on cello, and was mixed by Mark Lawson. The song is featured in the documentary film, Daddy Don’t Go, by Emily Abt.”
