A young trio only formed in late 2013, Happyness have emerged at great speed to release their self-produced debut album Weird Little Birthday on June 16th, following a critically acclaimed EP in Jan. 2014.
Drawing comparisons with the great slacker rock bands, Weird Little Birthday puts Happyness at the forefront of, wait for it, 'jangle-gaze' while displaying a more complex, melancholic and introspective nature too.
Mixed by Adam Lasus (Yo La Tengo, Daniel Johnston) and featuring Ed Harcourt's vocals on 1 track, Weird Little Birthday is preceded by the single Great Minds Think Alike.

Already being played on Radio 1 and XFM, the single is premiered by NME in April and will be followed by radio sessions at Radio 1, 6 Music and XFM.
Happyness tour with Public Service Broadcasting, then a UK tour with Ezra Furman for May, before headlining their own shows around June release.
Press support already from NME, Line Of Best Fit, Stereogum, Loud & Quiet, Skinny, Fake DIY, Clash
