Stephen Becker: It’s all a bit surreal – releasing music in the midst of a global pandemic

New York singer-songwriter, Stephen Becker, debuted his new single Slurpee which they described as “a sweet song about relentless horrors.” Of the poetic track, Becker says: “Slurpee juxtaposes springtime euphoria with social anxiety, icees and sandcastles with middle child syndrome and political turmoil. The pervasive kick drum represents an existential anxiety about the state of things, a brain freeze in the sun that prevents you from really enjoying the sunshine.” Stephen spoke with The Fountain about the reception to the single as well some of his favourite haunts.
