Behind The Scenes Of Highly Sedated’s ‘Slip Away’

Highly Sedated go into depth about the release of their track 'Slip Away' on their debut album.

| by | Features

Highly Sedated have been one of the stand out acts on Steve Angello’s Size Records label over the last few years. A five piece electronic band, their music is one which oozes emotion and brings together some brilliant elements to create utterly stunning tracks. With this, they have released their brand new and debut album, ‘All We Have Is Now‘.

For this special edition of Behind The Scenes, the group open up about their track ‘Slip Away‘ which has been released on the album. The track is just a beautiful piece, one which brings together a number of elements. With the piano melodies, thumping beat and stunning vocals, it oozes that emotional aspect and creates a beautiful atmosphere. It’s one which really stands out on the album. Check out what Highly Sedated had to say about ‘Slip Away’ below.

We wanted to talk some more about ‘Slip Away’ because it’s a song we all hold very dear and it has a message that feels really relevant. It was such a powerful feeling to perform it live with the orchestra a few weeks ago. Hannes even started crying when he saw it, as he was standing with the crowd. Truly magical.

Slip Away was the last song we recorded for the album. We felt that we wanted to include another hard dance track, something that could’ve been played at a warehouse rave in the late 90’s but at the same time keep the contemporary feel of 2017.

During the time we made the song, Trump and his minions were all over the media. Their talk of “fake-news” was starting to take root among their supporters and this was something we wanted to touch on in the song. There’s so much lies circulating and the propaganda machines are stronger than ever before. Now it’s more important than ever to think for yourself.

So we ended up with this politically charged, heavy bass-driven dance track. The mantra “you’re free to do as they tell you to / you’re free to buy what they sell to you” echoes throughout the whole song and the vocal chorus screams of despair. We also used a quote from Aldous Huxley, the author of Brave New World, as a reminder that this whole propaganda war is nothing new. Keep your eyes open and question everything. 

This is a group who should definitely be on the radar of every single person on the electronic dance music. Their music is pure, tracks which drive at the heart of the listener and connect in a superb way. Highly Sedated are a group to watch over the next few months and years. You can check out their full album ‘All We Have Is Now’ here.
