Brighton-based Happy Couple are in fact a trio, with Lena Pilshofer, Ben Thompson, and George Miles all having met while at uni here. Initially formed out of the ashes of Lunar Quiet, who featured Tom Knights, who passed away aged just 23, Happy Couple began work on new material at the beginning of 2017.
Their brutally cacophonous debut single, ‘Feel Better’, is the first taste from an EP expected later in the year. It’s about, “The monotony of everyday life, becoming depersonalised from reality. A perpetual existential crisis where everything is meaningless but the meaningless proves to be far more valuable than we realise.” Unsurprisingly, they’re influenced by the likes of Swans and Glenn Branca.
