Rising new alternative force, Stay Over, has released his brand new single, “Happy.” The bass-heavy track challenges society’s ideas of what it means to be happy while also encouraging those struggling with their own mental health to connect with the song and hopefully and understand they aren’t alone. “Happy” is out now via GRAMMY-nominated artist and producer Cisco Adler’s Bananaboat Records, who produced the track with Robbie Winward.
“I wrote and recorded this song in Philly at the house I grew up in,” says Stay Over. “It’s about growing up. It’s about me trying to figure out what the fuck is going on. Trying to figure out why I’m not as happy as I used to be. Everyone in my life used to know me as the happy kid. Then over time, I started getting sad. It’s been confusing. I’m coming to terms with it. Asking questions. Searching for answers. Trying to figure myself out. Accepting who I am and being okay with it.”
Stay Over draws influences from an array of artists including Kid Cudi, Death Cab For Cutie, and even Shakespeare, Stay Over has a human connection at the forefront of his music. Using his own personal experiences, mental health struggles, and emotions, he’s able to create music that touches upon love, loss, happiness, sadness, and more, that speaks to the human spirit, and is able to connect with his fans. Stay Over is based out of Coconut Malibu, a creative gathering place for the “next-generation community” of various types of artists including musicians, producers, directors, and visual artists.
