Lokoy Teams Up With Emilie Østebø for New Song “A Mistake”
- Norwegian pop punk band Sløtface's bassist Lasse Lokøy, aka Lokoy teamed up with Oslo-based singer-songwriter Emilie Østebø to release a new song “A Mistake”.
The song will appear on his debut solo album “Badminton”, following "both eyes" featuring Safario released last month.
It was written by Emilie Østebø, Tor-Arne Vikingstad and Lasse Lokøy.
The accompanying music video was directed by Lasse Lokøy and Balder Maximus.
Lokoy said of the song, “I first met Emilie when she was playing support for Sløtface a few years back and I remember all of us thought she was the greatest support band we've ever had. Earlier this year we met in my studio together with Tor-Arne and just kept cooking on Emilie's demo. We added a ton of guitars, and some dirty bass-synths and drum machines and BOOM. It just fell together nicely.”
Emilie Østebø said, “It's nothing too complicated; it deals with the relationship between two people, the dynamic between them. Often I feel like songs are a parody of yourself. The chorus of 'a mistake' is sort of a parody of the self-indulgent things you imagine saying to a person you've just had a fight with. I wrote the melody of the post-chorus on guitar, but Lasse had the idea to sing it instead. The childish and sarcastic tone of that melody when sung perfectly communicates the petulance of the lyrics.”
The debut album “Badminton” comprises of 15-track, in which he worked with Nils Bech, Safario, Moyka, and Sofus. It is set to be released on January 22, 2021.
