Happyness are set to release their debut EP on January 6th.
Grunge bands are dime a dozen, right? Check shirts, bobble hats, Fender Jaguar guitars and some fuzz pedals... it's an easy mixture to piece together.
Yet a difficult one to perfect. Out of the haze, few really stand out but - given what we've heard thus far - Happyness might just be able to do that.
A rising South London trio, Happyness have that college rock sound, that sweet/sour fusion down to a tee. But there's also an originality, a sense of personality which you can't copy from a Mudhoney LP or a Lou Barlow lyric.
With their debut EP due to emerge on January 6th, the band have placed new track 'It's On You' online. It's a beautiful thing - carefree but with lyrics which tug at the heartstrings in a manner chock full of pathos and sincerity.
Listen to it now.
Happyness will release their debut, self-titled, EP on January 6th.
