New Life 02:24


The Happy Somethings become the latest members of the Aldora Britain Records with their shimmering single 'New Life'. The track is taken from their Ego Test EP, to be released on 3rd June.

'New Life' is a jangling excursion into the world of romanticised indie pop. An optimistic look at the future and a new start. The kind of song that we all need just now! There is a retro-tinged, sun-soaked edge at play too. Endlessly catchy and brimming with an euphoric pop energy.

Joy, The Happy Somethings: "The influences of Julie Andrews, Mozart and The Beatles may have coalesced to create a chaotic, ramshackle, bittersweet noise through us."

For fans of The Beautiful South, Teenage Fanclub, The Beatles, The Housemartins, and Camera Obscura.


released May 23, 2022

Written, produced and performed by The Happy Somethings.

Released by Tom Hilton on Aldora Britain Records (ABR-330).
