A gig held at The Louisiana on Friday 13th December. The event starts at 19:00.

Welsh indie newcomers Half Happy release profound new offering ‘Slow Down’, arriving today (June 20th). Shooting up through Cardiff’s flourishing music scene, the thrilling quartet bounce around the walls of dream - pop, indie - rock and post punk but don't stay in one place for too long. Winners of the Welsh Music Prize 2023 (Triskell Award), the group mould their influences with fresh force, creating engaging and melody- stuffed storytelling, with honest observations melting into day- dream lyricism.

Having already earned substantial praise from Huw Stephens on the BBC 6 Music airwaves, Half Happy are primed to release a slew of new material in the coming months. Whilst on the live front, the band’s 10+ years of best - friendship is clearly evident in their stellar performances, with a slew of key support slots ticked off in recent times with the likes of English Teacher, Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard and Pale Blue Eyes.

Detailing their new release, frontwoman Rosalie Miller revealed: “You often see people you love let stress take over to a point where it consumes. It’s hard to tell them to stop or tell yourself to stop. ‘Slow Down’ is a message really. Stop what you’re doing, look around and try and find some joy, shut out external noise, go have a boogie in your room or something."

Happy Happy's 'Slow Down' is out now and available on all digital platforms.

Half Happy is Rosalie Miller (Vocals), Zac Nonely (drums), Pete Smith (Guitar) & Jon Wilson (Bass)
