Song Of The Day: Happyness – Vegetable

I hope you’ll forgive me for paraphrasing the title track from the soundtrack to Todd Solondz’s 1998 film Happiness, but when I learned recently that London’s Happyness had put out an album back in May of this year, I couldn’t help but think, “Happyness, where were you? I didn’t have a clue.”

It’s true – somehow I managed to miss out on the news that the band had put out a new album. I’d imagine the fact that the most direct way for a band to promote a new release – touring and playing live – has pretty much disappeared in the past several months, but beyond that, it’s on me – I just wasn’t paying attention. Luckily, I did finally find out and the band’s latest release, Floatr, is a solid addition to their catalogue – while the band may have lost original member Benji Compston in the time since releasing 2017’s Write In, they’ve lost none of what made their sound so enjoyable in the first place.

“Vegetable” is one of the more memorable tracks off of the new album, with a melody that brings to mind Elliott Smith. Check it out below.
