On the surface, Happyness’ frivolous, slackened indie-rock is as carefree as it comes. The band’s new ‘Tunnel Vision On Your Part’ EP, though, reveals a darker tint.
Draped in sadness and an aching romanticism, their airy sound becomes less playful on the new release. From ‘Surfer Girl’’s yearning for connection through to the title-track’s pensive closing moments, via recent singles ‘SB’s Truck’ and ‘Anna, Lisa Calls’, there’s a sense of the London stretching their aching muscles as they ready themselves for LP2.
