This summer self-produced NYC-based artist Quiet Luke returned with his first offering of the year, “YHP.” Today, he releases “I Wanna Go” which will be released alongside the warmer “YHP” on Quiet Luke’s new EP, Your Happy Place. The new project will be Quiet Luke’s second official EP following his darker, more experimental 2016 release Beholden.
When asked about the new single Quiet Luke states, “it’s is a pop song that relishes in the exhilarating yet terrifying butterfly-feeling of living in a world where nothing is real.” The song was written after falling for someone hard while at the same time watching the world around him fall apart, leading to disbelief in anything being “real” at all.
Quiet Luke began work on this music last year, while abroad in Berlin for school. Initially experiencing feelings of isolation in his new environment, Luke turned to the pop music of his childhood for comfort — listening to playlists that included songs from a range of artists such as ABBA, Gorillaz, Stevie Wonder, and Panic! At the Disco. From his music studies in Berlin he became well versed in krautrock, and through his new home’s nightlife he became fully immersed in the techno and house scene in Berlin. Sounds and colors began to get brighter as he settled into the foreign city.
While working on music in Germany, Quiet Luke was also taking in the shocking political events happening in America in the fall of 2016 from afar. “YHP” (short for Your Happy Place) was the first song from this time period and it became a place of solitude and escape for Luke – both literally and figuratively. These technicolor sounds were created from the feelings of excitement that accompany exploring a new place, but they also come from a feeling of homesickness for a place that is falling apart. At the end of the year, Luke returned to the US with a new mindset and approach. Determined to make more “fun” music, he broke free from the self-serious nature of Beholden to establish a more lighthearted sound. But below the surface of Luke’s happier style remains the deep-thinking, brooding energy that propelled his earlier music.
