Having first fallen in love with Happy Accidents seeing them live at Indietracks Festival two years ago, I was excited to hear that they’re set to release a brand new, self-produced, album this week.
Taken from the album, new single ‘Grow’ is lead by Phoebe Cross’ honey-sweet vocals alongside Rich Mandell’s swirling jangling melodies and a heartfelt, gentle emotion. Building with luscious harmonies and the reflective, relatable honesty of the lyricism, it’s perhaps a more mellow, but equally more-ish, offering than some of the band’s uptempo previous releases. And I can’t seem to stop listening; forever seeking soothing catharsis in Happy Accidents’ shimmering indie-pop.
Of the upcoming album, the band explain:
“Sprawling is an album about getting out of your head and allowing yourself to connect with others on a fundamental level, both in close quarters and with those you’ve never met – with everything in the state it’s in, it feels pretty relevant right now.”
