Garlands

Happy (stream)

By • Aug 7th, 2020 • Category: Single review

This is a glorious blast of noise from Garlands – a massive riff, bouncing backline and smarmy vocals, it recalls some of Britpop at its best, for example ‘Boys And Girls’ by Blur, but there is something else going on as well…

The almost forced tunefulness has an undercurrent of melancholy and this increases as the track goes on…

Have to say this is the first track in a while that BM could happily stick on repeat, so that is probably the greatest compliment it could be paid…

“Are you happy with me, are they you pleased…?” is a doleful refrain… and the lines about the “gundog” are just priceless… and that guitar solo, OMG…

A pant-wetting belter of a track (and you can quote BM on that)!
