HAPPYNESS / Write In (Moshi Moshi Recordings 2017.)

Indie onakav kakav treba biti. Dečki iz Londona koji zvuče kao da su sa Berkley-a, Glazba za aktivne i doživotne studente.

Poprilično uspješan prvijenac iz 2013. pod nazivom “Weird Little Birthday” privukao je dosta svjetla na londonski Happyness. I baš taj, skoro pa tipični američki college zvuk na ovom album je poprilično evoluirao i osjete se reference koje članovi benda sami navode ; Roxy Music, The Beach Boys, Randy Newman, Sonic Youth, Big Star i Pierre Cavalli.

Kroz razmišljanja Jon EE Allan-a, iz te simpatične južnolondonske trojke, naslućujemo kako Happyness gledaju na sam proces snimanja i stvaranja glazbe:

I’d like to think this record looks outside the little American alt-rock sphere we were looking in on. I think we used to be very afraid of being earnest. And now we’re able to be tender or heartfelt without feeling too guilty about it. This record cost us about £500 to make, and that was mainly spent on an 8 track tape recorder and a dehumidifier. We self-produced it in our studio [the affectionately named ‘Jelly Boy Studios’, where the band also recorded their debut, ‘Weird Little Birthday’]. The building’s being redeveloped at the end of the year, so this is the last record we’ll make there, which feels like the end of a chapter for us.
