As I write this, today (2 October, 2015) is a big day for Brighton based four-piece Demob Happy. After seven years as a band, and with the same line-up, they are releasing their debut album, playing an in-store at the recently expanded Resident Records, and a 'secret' show later tonight, a celebration of where they've got to so far.
Back in May they performed several shows as part of The Great Escape, including bringing the house down at the rammed Latest Bar, their fearsome, yet intricate and melodic stoner grunge rock sending many of the audience delirious. Their grooves are bouncy, and their stage manner infectious. You can't help but like this band. They look like they are are giving it all, and at the same time having a ball, a difficult to ignore combination that has seen them quickly gain a buzz in the UK and Europe. No doubt, with the release of the album Dream Soda, they will be building stronger and bigger foundations, as they concentrate fully on getting their music heard far and wide.
