We've written about Couchsleepers before—formed in 2019 by writer, producer, and neuroscientist Harrison Wood Hsiang, Couchsleepers unites a sprawling collective of musicians and artists under a single name. Latest single "Valentine's Day" delivers a cynical exploration of the upside involved with being on your own as an ultimately unconvincing note-to-self. Recorded in his one bedroom apartment, this bittersweet song attempts to shine a redemptive light on the disappointing absence of a romantic partner. We are left with the realization that loneliness is often just a simple fact of life.
"Valentine's Day" conveys a delicate and poignant reminder that true love is an invaluable gift, encased in a beautifully-crafted and sparse roots-driven groove that might remind you a bit of Bahamas. Clocking in at under two minutes, this heartfelt exploration of love's long shadow deserves to be remembered as an anthem for those of us that still feel the lingering pain of heartbreak. Here's to hoping that the legend is true: a soulmate could be just moments away, lurking around life's next corner.
