Happyness drop the first single from their new album

Check out ‘Falling Down’.
Happyness are gearing up for the release of their next album, due for release spring 2017. Today they share the first single from it – check out ‘Falling Down’ below.

“[It’s] one of many anti-overthinking songs,” says singer and guitarist Jon EE Allan. “I think we thought it would be funny to trick people into thinking we’d turned into Interpol or something for about 15 seconds at the beginning of the record.

“I remember we were talking at the beginning of the recording sessions about Wizzard and Roxy Music and us maybe taking a leaf out of the whole glam rock thing, but getting it a bit wrong. Like children dressing up in their parents’ clothes or something – completely silly but very serious about it.

“I don’t think we ended up pushing that line of thought for the whole of this song, or even for THAT much of the album, but maybe a bit of it made it into the outro synths.”

The album follows on from 2014’s ‘Weird Little Birthday’, and is likely to coincide with the band’s biggest London headline show to date at The Dome on 24th April.
