Happyness' debut album - Weird Little Birthday, expanded to include 4 new bonus tracks the album follows 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.
Weird Little Birthday is not quite a concept album about a boy who shares his birthday with Jesus Christ and eventually is driven insane with jealousy. It was largely recorded in the band’s own Jelly Boy Studios, and was mixed by Adam Lasus (Yo La Tengo, Daniel Johnston). It also features Ed Harcourt with vocals on Pumpkin Noir. The album showcases the band’s more melancholic, introspective nature alongside their youthful exuberance, dealing with the morning after the night before, and how, alas, not everything can invoke a dream house party soundtracked by Pavement.
