The boys have also released the first single titled “Happy Sad”, that you guys can discover below. On this song, frontman Dan Lamb comments:

Happy Sad is a song about finding solace in feeling happy whilst ultimately accepting you also must be sad. I wrote the song from the perspective of a third party seeing me cope with my moods during taking anti-depressants. Eventually, I came to realise that living in a limbo state of happiness and sadness was not natural. And I gradually took myself off of them and began to deal with my natural state.

The video encapsulated this perfectly, from the third person in a trippy dream-like corridor which linked the happy, the sad and happy-sad rooms. As the video goes on, you see myself explore the happy and sad rooms as though I’m looking into my own mind and also seeing myself on the effects of the medication.

Then at the end of the “happy-sad room”, I realise I need both of those feelings to feel at peace with myself. At first, I’m frightened at the change but then come to realise that the in-between is normality and I accept my feelings.”

About Valentine Klipfel

As a huge fan of pop-punk, easycore and punk-rock music since forever, I officially started my career in 2011 by offering press relations and social media services to underground bands and labels. In parallel, I also worked for other magazines and webzines, which allowed me to understand what a media wants to receive! I've finally created my own webzine in 2015. Since then, I've continued in this direction in order to help bands and labels develop their visibility and notoriety worldwide.
