Sløtface, have dropped the new single “Tap the Pack.” The track follows their previous single “New year, new me”. The track is the Norwegian band’s forthcoming release Sorry for the Late Reply, due out January 31 on Nettwerk/Propeller Recordings. The full-length marks the first time the band have acted as co-producers, as they worked alongside Odd Martin Skålnes (Sigrid, Aurora).
“Tap The Pack is about my sense of getting less confident as I came into my twenties than I did as a teenager,” explains frontwoman and lyricist Haley Shea. “It’s about coming to terms with the fact that you don’t know everything, and never will, and about how frightening it can be to get older and realise you’ve made choices that you have to stick with. It’s a self-pep-talk song about keeping that fear close to drive you, without letting it get you down, inspired by my grandfather who carried a pack of cigarettes in his left shirt pocket for years after he quit smoking just to prove to himself that he could have them there and not smoke them.“
