Band Of The Day: Half Dizzy
Long Island, NY punk act Half Dizzy has released their newest single, “Never Been Happier”. The track is their second single since being signed by Punkerton Records and precedes their upcoming 8-song EP titled Courtacy Flush (October 21st). It follows the lead single “Broken Down”, which was released on Sept 23rd.
Thematically, “Never Been Happier” is about getting out of a toxic relationship, and knowing you’ll be better alone than with someone who takes advantage of you. “We can feel trapped in a relationship and become complacent and comfortable because sometimes it feels better to be with someone than be alone,” says the band. “But if we push ourselves to get out of that relationship we’ll actually be better because of it. Sometimes we confuse being used for being loved, and those 2 are VERY different things.”
Along with the single, Half Dizzy has dropped a video for “Never Been Happier”. In a juxtaposition to the song, the band decided to release a less serious video. “We as a band know the importance of being serious when we need to be, but we also understand that humor and comedy are ways of working through trauma and stressful situations,” explains the band. “We love to fool around and lighten the mood with comedy, which is what this video is about. The message is very important and serious, but it’s delivered in a comedic way to help lighten the blow of what this song says.”
In true punk DIY fashion, the video was self-shot and edited by the band. “We watched a few videography tutorials on youtube, got ourselves a camera, and went to town. We love the DIY mentality and love to do whatever we can ourselves. The video and song are fun and colorful while the lyrics are more serious and self-empowering.”
“Never Been Happier” was engineered, mixed, and mastered by Matt Murphy and is now available across all major streaming platforms. Listen to it on Spotify now or watch the video on YouTube below.
