The Exeter based trio have released retro-pop banger ‘Happy Place’ and believe me, it is hard not to be in a happy place with this blasting through your earphones. Cited as one of NME’s ‘Hidden Gems’, it is conpletely understandable when you have a listen to the funky hit.
Written with the whole intention of throwing your mind into summer, the song vibes with 60’s/70’s inspired funk riffs mixed with modern synths whildn’t wouldn’t be amis in a Bruno Mars classic.
The vocals throughout are excellent, blending in perfectly with delicate keys and a drum beat you can’t help but nod your head too. Ultimately, I found myself wanting to get up and have a boogey whilst hitting repeat over and over again. It’s no secret that the old-school, pop vibes are making a comeback and are one of my guilty pleasures. I have a 2 hour train journey tomorrow, and coming in at just under 3 minutes long I’ll get a good 20 listens out of ‘Happy Place’ and I will not regret it!
The song was released in early September ahead of the trio’s UK tour which is sure to go off!
