Happyalone, a Cork band who's sound has been compared to Massive Attack and DJ Shadow, have exploded on the Irish music scene in 2018; their first single “colours” being championed by Spotify and going to number 1 on the Irish Viral 50. They have since been nominated as Irish Times “New Artist of The Week” in June and went on to win RTE 2FM’s Play The Picnic competition in July.
They have played a string of festivals this year including Body&Soul, Townlands Carnival, and Electric Picnic, and Other Voices as well as headline shows in Cork, Limerick, Dublin, Kilkenny and Galway.
They are regularly featured on Dan Hegarty’s ‘The Alternative' on RTÉ 2FM, and we were The Irish Times Artist of the Week in June of this year and recently supported ‘Le Galaxie’ in Cyprus Avenue.
Happyalone launched “Season IV” in September - A collection of audio and video releases across all digital platforms. The first release “WDYW4MM” has been described as “sonically ambitious” and “cinematic”, while the second release 'Haunted' “drips off the spoon of gratuity like a thick honey, nice and slow, but full of taste.”
“the band have asserted themselves as a promising new acquisition to the Irish music scene, having already gained a steady stream of acclaim and hype over the past few months.” - Ruth Cronin (Nialler9)
“Cork trio Happyalone. seem to inexorably advance in leaps and bounds with each passing single...I've no idea how Happyalone. became so good so soon.” - Remy (Best of Music & Film)
