Happyness preview new album with third single "Ouch (Yup)"

01 April 2020, 10:24 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Happyness have shared their new single "Ouch (Yup)", which is the third track to be lifted from their forthcoming album Floatr.

"Ouch (Yup)" arrives after earlier singles "Seeing Eye Dog" and "Vegetable".

They say of the fresh offering, "It’s about processing the stuff you leave behind, and not getting complacent and not assuming anything. We were going through some massive life changes around the time we wrote this song, and Brexit was happening (remember that!) It’s about disbelief I guess. And the slow excruciating dawning of reality :/ Reality is a weird rush, the truth sets you free. Those kinds of things."

Floatr will follow on from Happyness' 2017 LP Write In.

Drummer Ash Kenazi says of their forthcoming album, "There is a reason that PRIDE exists. Coming out is a total celebration of life. The circumstances around which you come to reveal your sexuality are often really tough, and being that vulnerable, and coming to be proud of your identity is a really important thing to share and celebrate. Floatr has helped us process some of the difficult stuff because everybody needs that."

"Ouch (Yup)" is out now. Happyness' Floatr album is due to land 1 May, and is available to pre-order now. They play a sold-out show at London's Moth Club on 19 June, and play return to the city to play Scala on 4 November. Find out more.
