Happyness Weird Little Birthday on LP + Download w/ Bonus Tracks

Happyness is a 3 piece band from South London, formed of multi-instrumentalists Ash Cooper, Benji Compston and Jonny Allan. By mid-2013, having written “most of an album” they rented out an unused church with the intention of setting up a studio and finishing the record there. That ended after less than a week with only one song tracked - they were driven out by “the bitter cold and an unconvinced congregation of the dead.” 

Relocating to their affectionately named Jelly Boy Studios (a one-time carpentry warehouse and butterfly commune an hour or so outside of London), the band self-produced their debut album and the songs that would become their debut EP. Before the recording sessions, the band had played a handful of shows under a variety of names (“something to put on the flyers”), but the name Happyness wasn’t used until November 2013, when the band started playing live in the build up to the release of their eponymous EP – mixed by Ed Harcourt.

The album – Weird Little Birthday - was mixed by Adam Lasus (Yo La Tengo, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah) and features Ed Harcourt singing on "Pumpkin Noir." Weird Little Birthday puts Happyness at the forefront of – wait for it – “janglegaze,” while displaying a complex melancholic and introspective nature. Filled with youthful exuberance and packed full of droll, deadpan British humor, this trio of South London lads means business.
