Just a few days ahead of the release of their new EP Tunnel Vision On Your Part, London trio Happyness are streaming it in full over at DIY.

*Listen to the EP HERE*

The EP, which also includes recent single SB’s Truck – a track penned by the band in homage to Samuel Beckett, who famously used to give the beloved, late, 80’s wrestler André The Giant lifts to school in his truck, owing to him being too large for his dad’s car – is released ahead of two London headline shows; the first at The Finsbury, and the second at Vauxhall City Farm, at which they’ll play a stripped-back set to include tracks from their work-in-progress 2nd album. Talking of which, the band says; “Vauxhall City Farm (http://www.vauxhallcityfarm.org) is one of our favourite spots in London & just up the road from where we wrote most of ‘Weird Little Birthday’. As part of the release of our new EP, ‘Tunnel Vision On Your Part’, we’re adopting the farm for the evening of October 8th for a stripped back show. Tickets are available now exclusively from Music Glue and all come with a download link or limited 12″ vinyl of the EP. ALL AGES WELCOME.” The limited 12” vinyl can be purchased here.

Tunnel Vision On Your Part also provides a rare direct glimpse into the band’s influences as they offer up not only their own interpretation of the Beach Boys’ classic Surfer Girl, but also a cover of Club Gaga’s Friend Of The Revolution. Of the brand new EP, the band said;We recorded this EP whilst working on our second album – it’s got three new songs, two of which will be on the second album, and two covers by The Beach Boys and Club Gaga. It’s all loosely inspired by cataracts in domestic animals.”
