Jolly London lot Happyness have shared a brand new single, and confirmed album two.
‘Falling Down’, the first taster of that ‘Weird Little Birthday’ follow-up, is a typically free-spirited cut of their US-inspired college-rock sound. “I think we thought it would be funny to trick people into thinking we’d turned into Interpol or something,” jokes frontman Jon EE Allan, before name-dropping inspiration from, er, Wizzard and Roxy Music. Fair enough.
It’s taken from album two, out this coming spring 2017 via Moshi Moshi in the UK and Bar/None in the USA. So far that’s all we know, but a newly-announced show at London’s Tufnell Park Dome should house more newbies.
Stream ‘Falling Down’ below - Happyness play the following shows in the coming months.
25 London, Bermondsey Social Club (Yala! Records night)
28 London, Tufnell Park Dome
