WATCH // Tomas Barfod Shares ‘Happy’ Video Via Noisey Premiere, ‘Pulsing’ EP Out Now

We’ve all danced alone at home to our favorite song. The only difference with the man in Tomas Barfod’s newest video for “Happy” is that his dancing is accompanied by a perfectly timed light show and I would say he is a much more talented dancer compared to my “get down” skills. While you gather your surge protectors and the neighborhood kids to hit the “On/Off” switch at just the right time, take a look at a master at work by watching the new video for “Happy” directed by Jakob Marky above via Noisey‘s premiere or here on our YouTube channel.

Happy features the vocals of Eddie Chacon. If you want to listen while you attempt to dance just like the man above you can hear it on our Soundcloud.

The track is taken from Barfod’s recently released Pulsing EP which you can get on iTunes here.

Tomas has a few tour dates coming up including a show in London at Birthdays on May 8th.

LISTEN // Tomas Barfod Shares New Track, “Happy (feat. Eddie Chacon), EP Out February 18th

Today, Tomas Barfod shares new track Happy featuring the vocals of Eddie Chacon (of Charles & Eddie). Listen to it above or on our Soundcloud / YouTube here.

On the song, Eddie wrote:


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.

If you missed it, we previously shared his track “Pulsing” featuring his long-time collaborator Nina K. and you can listen to it on our YouTube / Soundcloud.
