“One of the most thrilling new bands I’ve seen in years.”Sean Adams, Drowned in Sound
Despite having formed less than 12 months ago, LET’S BUY HAPPINESS sound like a band that have been around for years; the delayed guitars, tight formation and clipped Nordic-sounding vocals of lead singer Sarah Hall – reminiscent of Liz Fraser of Cocteau Twins or Sugarcubes era Björk – make LET’S BUY HAPPINESS one of the most exciting bands moving forward to 2011.
2009 EP ‘No Hot Ashes’ gained early support from Tom Robinson and Lauren Laverne of BBC 6music, a coveted and outstanding Maida Vale live session, and they have played with bands such as The Temper Trap, Idlewild and The Futureheads and recently performed at this year’s Glastonbury on the John Peel stage.
Six Wolves is a widescreen, icily lupine and ethereal single premiere. It has a cinematic sound that glimmers with the eerie, fairy-dust sparkle of Sarah’s vocals. With an album in the pipeline for sometime next year and tours to be announced LET’S BUY HAPPINESS will surely be a band to watch in the coming months.
… and watch them you should here – beautiful stuff!
