Happyness are gearing up for the release of their sophomore album by share ‘Bigger Glass Less Full’ which is available as a free download with album pre-orders. New album ‘Write In’ is out on April 7th.

Once back from this year’s SXSW, they’ll head straight out on a headline UK tour (including their biggest London show to date for April 28th), followed by European dates in May. Dates below.

Happyness shared some thoughts on Bigger Glass Less Full: “Bigger Glass started with an oblique strategy that we learnt from Terry Gilliam: apparently he made “Brazil” without ever reading 1984. We were trying to sound like a Pierre Cavalli song we’d heard once a very long time ago. It couldn’t sound less similar if we’d tried… We added the acoustics when we were in LA mixing with Adam Lasus – as of now the only thing we’ve ever recorded outside the UK.”
