Happiness Releases Second LP

On the eve of the release of their sophomore album, Happyness have shared new track “Bigger Glass Half Full”. They are releasing their new album “Write In” on April 7th via Bar/None. After a successful SXSW and appearance at Treefort Festival, Happyness will be playing Los Angeles on March 24th at The Echo with La Luz. They’ll be returning back to the states in May and June for a longer tour making their way towards the East Coast.

When Happyness first burst into the public conscience with debut single “It’s On You,” their spirited take on US college rock was as big a surprise as it was an instant hit. The resulting full length, “Weird Little Birthday”, went on to feature in many End of Year album lists. Worldwide tours, an NME Award and millions of Spotify plays later, it is now just a few short weeks until their long-awaited follow-up “Write In” is released.

Part-recorded at the band’s own Jelly Boy Studios, then finished with Adam Lasus in LA, Happyness shared some thoughts on Bigger Glass Half Full: “Bigger Glass started with an oblique strategy that we learnt from Terry Gilliam: apparently he made “Brazil” without ever reading 1984. We were trying to sound like a Pierre Cavalli song we’d heard once a very long time ago. It couldn’t sound less similar if we’d tried… We added the acoustics when we were in LA mixing with Adam Lasus – as of now the only thing we’ve ever recorded outside the UK.”
