Happyness are doing their part to continue the lo-fi tradition that’s proven so popular as of late. They’ll be releasing their newest material in less than 2 weeks. The ‘Tunnel Vision on Your Part’ EP will be released on the 23rd of September on Moshi Moshi. As per usual in the past, the guys have a winsome description for the EP’s opening track, ‘Anna, Lisa Calls’:

This is our first phone call song and our 5th song in E major. We wrote it one day in the studio in June and recorded it straight away – I think we were going for a kind of Traveling Wilburys thing. Also we felt like we hadn’t put a synth in a song for a while, so there’s a synth.

To celebrate the release of the new EP, the London trio have unveiled this live performance of the song, which you watch below. There’s also an intriguing, Pixies at their most melodic kind of feeling to it. Which begs the question, which Happyness are we going to get on the new EP? We’ll have to wait until the 23rd to find out.
