Grandmas House have debuted a brand new track, ‘Always Happy’.
Released via Brace Yourself Records (Nuha Ruby Ra, Laudromat), the Bristol band explain: “‘Always Happy’ is a song we wrote about the social anxiety we all experience in some way or another particularly concerning social media, which gives the chance to easily convey a polished, perfect life which is often misleading – it’s not daily life, but snippets of the best parts. Moments of happiness and confidence that build to an image of contentment in the same way a smile can be used as a mask from what is really going on in the real world.
The song is wrapped in sarcasm based on our experiences of being perceived as a certain person, particularly on stage, where we are overconfident, exaggerated versions of ourselves, and social anxiety appears far away. The lyrics are an ironic take, in the way that they are the complete opposite of how we sometimes feel and we think a lot of people can relate to this feeling.
We wrote the song during the first lockdown back in March and it felt incredibly natural, it was one of those songs that just came together so quickly as we were all completely on the same wavelength concerning the meaning of it.”
‘Always Happy’ will appear alongside a second track, ‘Small Talk’, on a new single set for release on 12th March.
