Although the track is poppy and uplifting, the lyrics of the song touch on a heavier subject, the story of Happy. vocalist and guitarist Tate Logan’s experience of someone close to him struggling with addiction.
He says, “It describes the anger, frustration and resentment that I felt in the beginning and was an outlet for me surrounding the lies and manipulations that occurred during the darkest moments of the addiction. However, now my loved one is clean and has been for a while. They have completely regained control of their life and I couldn’t be happier.”
A Cure For Wellness also comes with the announcement of their upcoming second album Imposter Syndrome. Living up to the name, the album will explore a narrative of the band’s own experience with imposter syndrome, a subject which many young bands go through when they’re shot into the spotlight.
On the album, the band says, “from the lows of depression, anxiety, and addiction, to the highs of traveling, making friends and living the dream, this record is our everlasting chase for ‘success.’”
Imposter Syndrome was produced by Marc McClusky (Weezer, Motion City Soundtrack, The Front Bottoms) and promises to continue to grow on the band’s brand of music that promotes positivity, personal growth and self-defined happiness.
Happy. are a three-piece group who got their start in 2016 with their EP The Endless Bummer, giving them a strong start in the music industry and their 2018 debut album Cult Classic got them slots on tours with the likes of Super Whatevr and Chapel.
A Cure For Wellness is available now on all good platforms.
