Song Of The Day: "Happiness" by Smoke Rings

Hey guys!

There are those rainy days, on which I absolutely love having calm music in the background.
I think I've written tons of posts about that.

But there are also those rain days, on which I need a pick-me-up.
You know, something lively and encouraging. Something that keeps you motivated, something with some sort of spark.

Today is one of those "please send me a pick-me-up" day.
And that's why today's track is one to get you excited.

- Song Of The Day -
"Happiness" by Smoke Rings

Smoke Rings are a five piece from Melbourne, Australia.
Their sound ties in Brit-Pop elements with sparks of Alternative-Rock, leaving them with their unique signature sound.

Smoke Rings are:
Lauren Heron (keyboard, percussion)
Shane O'Keeffe (vocals, guitar)
Jon Wright (guitar)
Elliott Weston (bass)
Liam Gough (drums)

It all started when Lauren and Shane wrote and demo'ed a bunch of songs on a cold Winter day in Canada.
After taking the songs home with them, they introduced them to their friends Jon and Elliott, whom they started rehearsing the tracks with.
Soon enough, the musicians found dummer Liam, and the puzzle was complete.

They released their self-titled debut album in August 2016 and then began to play their way through Melbourne, with shows including St Kilda Festival, Northeast Party House, Big White, Good Boy, Jarrow and many more.

In June 2017, they followed up with a limited 7" Double A Side, "Go To Hell".

And now they are here with a brand new video for their latest single, "Happiness".

"Happiness" definitely showcases the band's Brit-Pop influences and gets you grooving immediately. It's the mixture of catchy riffs and badass percussions, paired with a funky bassline, that has the power to win you over within seconds.

The lead vocals do exactly that, they lead you through the track and make sure you don't get lost in the instrumentation. With the little help from subtle backing vocals, you end up with a brilliantly crafted piece of music.
