Already showing a stellar 2020 with previously featured tracks “Figure It Out” and “Isn’t It Strange,” Sluka‘s “Happy In Your World” shows further songwriting strengths from the acclaimed San Diego-based project. The track journeys enjoyably from piano-driven balladry into theatrical prog-rock, convincing in each element. The ballad sections remind fondly of Meatloaf, escalating with feverish intent via the string-laden acceleration approaching the two-minute mark. The second track is a soaring, grandiose spectacle with strings, backing vocals, and rousing instrumentation. “Happy In Your World” is further indication of Sluka’s ability to craft stirring, grand-sounding songs.
The track comes via Sluka’s forthcoming album, Figure It Out.
“Happy In Your World” and other memorable tracks from August can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of August 2021’ Spotify playlist.
