90s Nostalgia Mixed With Modern Alternative

Happyness is sure to bring you exactly what their name offers with their 90s alternative rock lead guitar style along with their abstract lyrics that lead you to places in your mind that you don’t pay much attention to. How many British guys does it take to create this sick sound, you ask? Three! Jon EE Allan (Guitar, Bass, Vocals), Benji Compston (Guitar, Vocals), and Ash Cooper (Drums). This band has played festivals such as Reading and Leeds which is where so many of my favorite legendary bands have played.

Their first album Weird Little Birthday was released on March 30th of 2015 from their personal studio, Jelly Boy Studios. This record is 17 tracks long, some of the songs being pretty lengthy. The next bit of music they produced was an EP Tunnel Vision On Your Part, released on September 23rd, 2016, and is 5 tracks long, named after the last song. Their most recent album Write In, not out yet, releases on April 7th of this year (2017). This record will features 2 tracks from the previous EP.

My Favorite Tunes (I know, I listed a lot):

‘Montreal Rock Band Somewhere’

‘Great Minds Think Alike, All Brains Taste the Same’

‘Friend Of The Revolution’

‘SB’s Truck’

‘Orange Luz’

‘It’s On You’

‘Leave The Party’

‘Monkey In the City’

‘You Come To Kill Me?!’

‘A Whole New Shape’

The guys got their name from the song “Hello Moscow” by Brute Force and mispelled it purposely to pay tribute to Happy Shoppers convenience store.
