Every time we have access to a new track from Tomas Barford‘s upcoming “Pulsing” EP, our heart is filled with an intense and raptured force that instantly makes us repeat carefully every single note of the new piece. “Happy (feat. Eddie Chacon)” is the second unveiled track that we’re having the opportunity to listen and share. It’s practically impossible to stay indifferent behind such an ethereal, clean and strong piece of artistic music. Every single little piece of sound engages the listener into a progressive journey of pure fantasy, superbly embellished with Eddie Chacon’s early-’90s soul luscious voice. Just like the previous single “Pulsing” |listen here|, it’s honestly hard to describe in words what do we feel when we hear this single. Please, do yourself a favor and pre-order your copy of the EP on iTunes, because it worth every single cent you will spend. Listen to the track below, and read Eddie’s own thoughts about the song. Stay Golden….
“The lyrics to Happy came about differently than any song I have written before. One day while driving in Los Angeles with my wife we were talking about a person’s natural disposition. She labeled me an eternal optimist. I thought about that for a second before I replied that this world is hard on artists. In my 35 year music career starting in the late 70’s in San Francisco and leading up until now that I had seen so many of my great musician friends slip away due to aids, drugs, car accidents, suicide and even santaria but that I had decided I was gonna be happy. My wife was moved by this and insisted I make a song out of it.
I’ve attended many funerals in my life and I always think the same thing: Any day above ground is a good day.”
