With their critically acclaimed new album Write In now released world-wide, and a whole host of festival appearances coming up across the summer, Moshi Moshi Records signings Happyness have confirmed another London UK headline show of their own for October 27th at The Garage. Tickets will be on sale from Friday June 23rd. The band are also celebrating signing to Rough Trade Publishing and the release of a new single Uptrend / Style Raids.

Discussing the track, the band say it is “A song mainly about not knowing how to dress.

A few years ago we spent a whole day walking around a big sprawling flea market in Paris determined to find something vaguely musical. Eventually as it was getting dark we managed to find an old supermarket announcement microphone and a Bontempi chord organ that Benji’s cat immediately broke. We recorded Uptrend / Style Raids live and were already using all our normal sounding microphones for the instruments, so the guide vocals were done into the Paris mic and we liked them too much to change them. We were out of mic stands so we had to tape it to a lampshade.”
