SLAPEN
- EDDY ZOËY

Sleeping or Slapen is one of the songs included on Eddy Zoëy's 7th studio album. This album includes a number of intimate songs which Eddy wrote, produced, and performed entirely by himself.

 

The song “Sleeping” is indeed a lullaby, played on acoustic guitar. Furthermore, in the subtle construction of the song, a bass guitar handled by Eddy, shaker, and cajon. All quietly cumulating to a small form of crescendo. And that's it. It doesn't take much to put something beautiful and honest down.

 

Lyrically, the content is meant to be soothing and "soother" for anyone who has the feeling that they have a lot to give, a lot work, with little feeling of progress in return. The message is; come to rest, look at something a different way, preferably from a different angle, and perhaps start again.

More about
this production

Eddy's soothing melody and lyrics immediately brought the image of a bed on an empty beach into Charlotte, the director of the video, her head.

The calmness of the song is reflected in the visuals of the film. Yet, the film starts with a completely different tone as we see Eddy in a black suit driving a black car on a small, country-sided road.

 

When he parks the car, Eddy takes a pretty mysterious case out of the trunk. "It's so fun to try to lead the audience into one direction, and then change the narrative. It builds this fun excitement", says Charlotte Verminck.
