Mokita Shares New Single ‘Happiness’

Mokita, the moniker of Nashville singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist John-Luke Carter, has just shared his brand new single Happiness, an upbeat indie/electronic song out now via Nettwerk Music. 
What I like the most about the song is how Mokita's smooth vocals are packed with so much passion and emotion, soaring flawlessly over the upbeat melodies. Happiness is a testament that happiness is not 24/7 or a light switch away and that the biggest takeaway is becoming content right now with yourself. This message is beautifully conveyed through Mokita's lush vocals that are backed by a distorted bass line nicely intertwined with cool guitar riffs, steady drum patterns, warm electronics and sweeping melodies that create an overall alluring soundscape perfect to get you in a good mood and ready for a fun day. Check it out below!



Mokita shares this about his new single:
 ‘Happiness’ was born in my buddy and songwriting partner Trent Dabbs’ studio. Most every song me and Trent write together is born from conversations about life, faith, meaning etc. I had this riff on the acoustic guitar that I was playing around with and then we started tossing around melodies. The song came together relatively quickly but didn’t have any production around it for a few weeks. I wanted to write a song about longing, about the craving we all have for real happiness, real joy. I found myself constantly feeling like I was working towards happiness, and not experiencing it in everyday life. It's easy to lie to myself and say ‘you’ll be happy when you have this amount of money’ or ‘you’ll be happy when this problem is fixed’ or ‘when you’ve accomplished this goal’. But I don’t want to live like that. I want to be content where I am. I’m so blessed with what I have. With the ability to work my dream job everyday. I want to experience happiness in real time; and that's what this song is about. There isn’t an anchor in material things. You can’t bank your life on those things; they won’t make you happy.
