Tomas Barfod has shared a striking video for “Happy,” taken from the current EP ‘Pulsing’. The very affecting video features a lonely man dancing in an empty room, with his only partner being the beautifully timed flashing lights of the video. The track features Eddie Chacon of the ’80s pop duo Charles & Eddie, and was released earlier this month. The EP precedes an additional album by Tomas Barfod, planned for release later this year.

Back in the summer of 2012, Tomas Barfod released his debut solo album, the sophisticated blend of electronics that is ‘Salton Sea’. Lauded by the likes of Pitchfork, Dazed & Confused and Gorilla vs Bear, its success took Barfod slightly by surprise.
Inspired by a move to LA and mainly written and recorded on the road, often in hotel rooms on his laptop, it was an album that was imbued with a sense of spontaneity and experimentation. Its success has paved the way for the forthcoming follow-up ‘Pulsing’, a single that continues this spirit of adventurousness but takes it to a whole new level.
