Since we first featured Let’s Buy Happiness on the blog back in February 2010 the band have had an exciting few months, recording a BBC Maida Vale session before a studio audience on BBC 6 Music, playing the John Peel stage at Glastonbury and gearing up for the release of their new single Six Wolves which is released on the 18th October through Ghost Arc Records.
Six Wolves is not as instant as previous songs such as Devil Show and Works Better On Paper, but you will be immediately drawn to the intoxicating voice of Sarah Hall, who seems to be the missing link between Harriet Wheeler of The Sundays and the Cocteau Twins. Given further listens you will find yourself being gradually drawn in to the building and gliding guitar sounds that interlock to create something quite beguiling. Even more exciting is the fact that the second track on the single - Woodrings is just as good.
Let’s Buy Happiness teach a lesson in beautiful music - the kind of charming indie sounds that lost identity to the brashness of Brit Pop in the early 90’s. We’re very pleased that Let’s Buy Happiness are creating that type of music again. It’s to be cherished. As any wise man will tell you, happiness cannot normally be purchased, only achieved through state of mind, but in this case the wise man is wrong. You can purchase your own slice of happiness and order the single, which is limited to 500 copies here.
