General News / October 18, 2019

Quick-fire questions: Happyalone.

Operating on the dark web, Mike Skinner easing them into the octagon and which skateboarding legend they need at Glastonbury.

Happyalone. have been quietly working away in 2019. Having played All Points East, Latitude and numerous other stages over the Summer they’ve now ‘L U C I F E R’. Their first release of 2019 is a statement of intent that blends their diverse influences ranging from rock to trap. It’s hard to place the group neatly into one genre and the boys routinely throw a spanner in the works in regards to what is expected sonically, keeping interested listeners on their toes.

Where can we catch you during the rest of 2019?

Happyalone: Locked away in our bedroom studio churning out the hits you never knew you wanted to hear. No in all seriousness we’ve cut ourselves off from the outside world, fully immersing in the pain and glory of the creation of art. It is blood, sweat, tears and bucket loads of wine. Brace yourselves for a whole lot of music from Happyalone. to define the 20’s.

Try your best to stay positive and know we love you.
