Watch: on Youtube

Happyness have just unveiled their first ever music video, for “Anything I Do Is All Right”, the lead track from their forthcoming “Anything I Do Is All Right” EP. The EP, out September 1st, is a digital only release which arrives just as the band gear up for a headline run in October. Having spent May on the road with Ezra Furman, appeared at Liverpool Sound City and Live At Leeds, as well as booking in summer appearances at festivals like Reading, Leeds, Bestival, Secret Garden Party and Green Man, the band are set for what is sure to be their busiest tour yet.

The band comment: “One night in Bermondsey, we wanted to make a louder one.  It’s kind of about getting your personality off the internet or the television or pornography or whatever you’re hooked on. We’re going on tour again, it will be nice to get as close as possible to as many people as possible.”

Taking in a show at London’s Elektrowerkz on October 14th, the band will be translating their trademark brand of bracing, but literate, fuzzy alt rock to live audiences in the UK, before taking their first steps in the USA at this year’s CMJ.

The ‘Anything I Do Is All Right’ EP is released on 1st September and
