Said The Whale Releases New Single ‘Nothing Make Me Happy’

The song showcases the band at their most infectious. A wall of harmonized vocals are driven forward by insistent drums and sweeping synth swells, all the while the mantra of ‘Nothing Makes Me Happy’ works as not only a statement of modern malaise, but as a shared experience. The song showcases our common position in a world of constant social bombardment.

The band’s thoughts on the new song:

“We wrote “Nothing Makes Me Happy” with our friend Ali Milner, who performs under the name WILLA. We were thinking about friends of ours who complain about their lives even though from an outsider’s perspective they’ve got everything. It’s a very common complaint to have right now, and it’s something that is perpetuated by social media – seeing your peers share only the best moments of their lives makes everything you do feel weak by comparison. And I’m guilty of it, too! We can be so focused on the goals we’re trying to achieve that we forget to take a step back and appreciate what we have. Now that I think about it, this song is a little bit like a re-hash of ‘Mo Money Mo Problems’ but targeted at insecure, privileged millennials. *shrug emoji*”

New album As Long As Your Eyes Are Wide, is out now via Hidden Pony Records.
