Moshi Moshi

Weird Little Birthday est le nouvel album auto-produit d’HAPPYNESS sur le label Moshi Moshi. Le trio londonnien a frappé un grand coup avec ce disque, menant ainsi le célèbre magazine NME à les mentionner dans leur liste des meilleures nouveaux groupes, il en est de même pour The Sunday Times dans la catégorie des meilleures albums de l’année.
C’est entre de bonnes mains que Weird Little Birthday a été confectionné: Adam Lasus pour le mixage (Yo La Tengo, Daniel Johnston) et Ed Hartcourt pour la voix sur le titre Pumpkin Noir. Plus mélancolique et introspectif, cet album va faire parler de lui sur la scène indé.




After a whirlwind 2014, which ultimately saw the South London trio make NME’s Best Newcomers list, as well as The Sunday Times Best Albums of The Year, Happyness can finally announce that they have signed to Bar None Records for USA and Moshi Moshi Records for UK/RoW (alongside Magniph Records in Japan).
Their first order of live business this year will be a headline slot at Birthdays on Feb 4th, as part of the NME Awards Shows (tickets here), alongside a nomination for Best Lyric of 2014.
Those eager for brand new material need only wait for early Spring when debut album Weird Little Birthday gets the Enhanced Version 2.0 CD treatment, as well as a long awaited vinyl release – both via Moshi Moshi Records. Live favourite ‘A Whole New Shape’ is also set to surface as a single in the Spring too.
And if that isn’t enough, Happyness have purloined this for your enjoyment, a cover of the Norah Jones hit ‘Don’t Know Why’, as they ready themselves to announce further UK, EU shows, plus confirmation of a coast to coast US tour, taking in SXSW, and a debut US release of Weird Little Birthday through Bar/None.
The band said: “We’re very happy to have been adopted by the Moshi Moshi family and are looking forward to the NME Awards show on February 4th with Nai Harvest. Thanks, peace, love yourself.”
