Happy Abandon is breaking through the masses with their new single, “If I Stare.” Recently I had the honor of catching the band play at Rockwood Music Hall in New York City, which they tore up the crowd with tracks like “Love Like Language,” “Heavy Lines,” and a cover of Sylvan Esso’s “Dress.”
Together the band proves to be an unstoppable force. Hailing from North Carolina the group have been steadily on tour throughout the Summer, and are picking up where they left off this Fall. Forming last year in 2015, Happy Abandon have already garnered critical acclaim and have been playing along Indie heavy-hitters such as Widowspeak, Vacationer, Rubblebucket and more; carving their own name into music history. They’ve been compared to artists such as Local Natives, Mumford and Sons and Alt-J, while adding their own unique essence to the mix.
Happy Abandon consists of key players Peter Vance on guitar and vocals, Jake Waits on drums, Alex Thompson on keyboards and programming and Justin Ellis on Bass. Together Happy Abandon create an explosive sound that brings a whole new generation of Indie music to life.
With a new LP and a West Coast tour in the works for early 2017, we can’t wait to see what the band has to offer next!
