Glass Vaults' sophomore LP was recorded and mixed to seduce. ASMR, otherwise known as a "brain orgasm," is an aurally triggered euphoric experience characterised by a tingling in the scalp which travels down the neck and spine and The New Happy was specifically mixed to elicit an ASMR effect. "We focused on retaining short high frequency transients and worked on modulating and panning certain sounds to induce goose bumps and shivers when listened through headphones," Smith explains of the record's atmospheric ambiance. "It looks not to emulate a sexual high, but a deeper, euphoric wave, that washes over the body in feelings of comfort and security… a new kind of happy."
