Let’s Buy Happiness – Run

Let's Buy Happiness

It’s not often that a female vocalist manages to make me sit up and listen, but on this track from Newcastle band Let’s Buy Happiness Sarah Hall has completely drawn me in with her emotionally-driven melody, riddled with just the right amount of self-doubt. This is the first track I’ve heard from LBH and I’m wondering why I haven’t checked them out before. Musically it’s in a similar vein to Pale Seas, who I posted about a little while back – gentle guitars and swooping vocal hooks mixed with a generous helping of reverb and tremolo on the side. Although touchingly melancholy as a whole, Run is almost optimistically hopeful in places. They’re currently recording their debut album Chants For Friends, from which Run is the first single.
