London-based trio Happyness combined dreamy indie rock melodies that took inspiration from '90s indie outfits such as Sparklehorse and Pavement, while intertwining purposeful, wry, 21st century humor to their brooding songs. Having known each other as teens, singer/guitarist Benji Compston, singer/bassist Jonny Allan, and drummer Ash Cooper found themselves together writing music in a studio under railway arches in South London. After performances under a few different monikers, the three-piece finally settled on 'Happyness'.
They were soon picked up by indie label Weird Smiling and recorded their debut album, 'Weird Little Birthday', released in 2014. In 2017, they released their sophomore album, 'Write In'.
