Oslo quartet Das Body returns with new pop anthem “Better Half,” co-produced by Jorge Elbrecht (Sky Ferraira, Ariel Pink). Blooming over a gritty sub-bass and silvery synths, “Better half” is a mind-dazzling banger that reminds you of finding emergency exits in every situation – no matter how hopeless they are. Hit play:

“This song – and the whole record really – is about discovering emergency exits,” noted Das Body. “From your own mortality, from your better half, or your own head. When you’ve been with your better half for some time, the exit signs might disappear. In this case, though, it has suddenly become very obvious why things are shitty and where the exit is, and that is a pretty enticing revelation. In that way this is one of the more positive songs on the album. But it wouldn’t be a Das Body song without a healthy dose of doubt and self-loathing to balance it out, which are the prevalent feelings in the choir parts.”

“Better Half” is from Das Body’s upcoming debut album Peregrine, which will be out on November 20th.
