Happyness have released 'Ouch (yup)', a song about "the slow excruciating dawning of reality"

Happyness have released their new single ‘Ouch (yup)’, a cut from their upcoming third album 'Floatr', due out on 1st May.

"It’s about processing the stuff you leave behind," they explain, "and not getting complacent and not assuming anything. We were going through some massive life changes around the time we wrote this song, and Brexit was happening (remember that!) It’s about disbelief I guess. And the slow excruciating dawning of reality. Reality is a weird rush, the truth sets you free. Those kinds of things."

The band are currently going to celebrate the album's release with a sold out show at London's Moth Club on 19th June, a handful of tour dates in October, and a big 'un at London's Scala on 4th November.

Give 'Ouch (yup)' a listen below.

A pop star’s job is not to be boring - so in making best mates with his drum machine, and then naming an album - ‘GENE’ - after it, LA Priest is living his best life.
