Let’s Buy Happiness – “Works Better On Paper”
Pairs Well With…Beach House, Bat For Lashes, Arcade Fire
With just a few singles under their belts, Let’s Buy Happiness has already built a healthy following overseas based on their post rock/indie pop hybrid sound. Gentle swells of drone undermine many of their songs, acting as a canvas rather than a driving force. Let’s Buy Happiness add interesting percussion and poppy melodies that works in tandem with the darker undertones rather that against it. The band’s frontwoman has an energetic delivery and vocal depth, pairing nicely with the musical direction of the band. Let’s Buy Happiness should have a proper LP or at minimum an EP within the next few months, so this could be a breakout band in 2013 if they continue to progress their sound.
