Happy Cat Jay drops sultry debut single ‘Underpants’.
Multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer Happy Cat Jay has been working diligently on his music since 2015, producing typically rich soundscapes in his work with Alxdnr London in previous years, now Happy Cat Jay reveals the debut track under his own moniker.
‘Underpants’ plays as a Pop Soul blend, showing off Happy Cat Jay’s wry wit in a song told from the perspective of one already famous celebrity. “It was important to me that my debut track as a solo artist was something fun.” He says of the release, “It’s also the first track I’ve released with my own vocals on and I wanted that to feel like a light-hearted experience… Musically, I really wanted to front it with this faux-sexy vibe. But I want people to move to this, preferably with a big grin on their face. The song was written from the perspective of a big celebrity, questioning why people are so fascinated by the publicising of their private lives and why the media loves to create the boundary between a celebrity’s life and everyone else’s life.”
