Demob Happy Release New Single Be Your Man

Thursday, 12 October 2017 Written by Laura Johnson

Demob Happy have released a new single.

Be Your Man is the first to be lifted from their forthcoming sophomore album, the follow up to 2015's 'Dream Soda', which boasts production by Ian Davenport. 

Speaking about the track, frontman Matt Marcantonio said:

“The most important thing has been asking ourselves “what are we now?”. A lot has changed since the first album, in our heads and our situations, the things life brings. It was mutate or die… so we reset ourselves and just wrote what felt good.

We could have compensated by adding more and more to make it bigger and bigger, but that’s a never-ending game of dick wagging tail chasing, and it’s not a game we play, so we did the opposite, and focussed in on harmony and swing, the stuff that excites us.

It's like The Beatles found peyote and fuzz pedals instead of acid and sitars. It's exactly what we wanted it to be.”

The Brighton trio will support Dinosaur Pile-Up on their UK tour next month.
