Slaney channels the last good vibes of Summer on new single ’83’ (Premiere)

Luke Sharkey

Irish folk-pop artist Slaney premieres her second single of 2019 today with ’83’.

The track is the follow up to ‘Lucky To Be Alive’, which premiered on the site back in July. It’s the artist’s third release to date, with ‘Recharge My Soul‘ coming out late last year.

’83’ is a poptimistic anthem. Built upon an infectious afro-beat styled arrangement – complete with tight vocal harmonies and jangly clean guitars. It’s a track full of life and sunlight, the last good vibes of the summer.

Conceptually ’83’ deals with an listener out of place and time, finding more resonance in the music of the 80s than what is being made today. This gives birth to the song’s title, featured in the line “feels like I belong back in 1983”.

Here’s what Slaney had to say about that track – “’83’ is a song about feeling more of a connection to music from the 1980’s than today’s modern music. It’s a song about doing your own thing in life and music regardless of what anyone else is doing or thinking, be your own authentic self no matter what.”

On this track, the artist teamed up again with producer Michael Hopkins. It’s a collaboration that has been a winner for the duo in the past and one that may well yet produce more music in the near future.
