Label: Schoolkids Records

Returning from their acclaimed album Facepaint, Happy Abandon share symphonic ‘Beneath Our Feet’. Touching on folk, indie and pop and with investigative and introspective lyrics, this track has it all. The guitars pick after the midway point, and with the drum rolls draw on alternative rock but rather than being bullied out of the mix, the vocals become all the more biting – and hold their own. For it’s final section, the track takes on an acoustic flavour with unplugged guitars and winsome whistling – before one final build to an eruption that never occurs. Happy Abandon are a band at the peak of their powers and are gearing up to hit the road as they embark on a short tour of Ireland supporting esteemed singer-songwriter Mundy, dates below:
