Divus Julius presents: Happyness

Happiness is a great feeling; Happyness is a great band. The South London trio specializes in lush-yet-breezy indie rock that conjures all sorts of wistful feelings then takes the piss out of them with wry puns and punchlines. Think of it as Sparklehorse’s mournful dream-pop pocket symphonies infused with Pavement’s winking ironic sensibility, or Yo La Tengo if their public sense of humor seeped into their records more often.

Happyness are set to release new album ‘Floatr’ in May, they have shared some tasters such as ‘Vegetable’ or ‘Seeing Eye Dog’. It’s the now-duo’s first new material in three years, but also their first since drummer Ash Kenazi began incorporating his drag into the band.
