Happyness - Great Minds Think Alike, All Brains Taste The Same
London based trio Happyness appear to have been brought up on a diet consisting entirely of 90s American slacker rock, if their latest single, the wonderfully titled "Great Minds Think Alike, All Brains Taste The Same", is anything to go by. This sub-2 minute track combines Pavement-esque grooves and "ooh-oohs" with some of the most deadpan lyrics (sample - "the more I like you, the more I like my dog"). It's great that they give off the impression of not trying very hard, yet have given us something very special indeed.
The debut album from Happyness, "Weird Little Birthday", will be released on June 16th.
