"DRENCHED IN MELODY, RECALLING THE LIKES OF MARTHA AND THE FRONT BOTTOMS, AND THE INFECTIOUS POP-ROCK SEEPING OUT OF THE UK'S DIY SCENE THAT THE BAND ARE BECOMING A STRONG PART OF." - DIY MAGAZINE London indie-punk trio Happy Accidents have got a rather big summer planned, announcing their signing to Alcopop! Records and the forthcoming release of their debut album You Might Be Right, which will be revealed to the world on 1 st July. This accompanies a rather enviable string of tour dates in mainland Europe and a run of UK festivals. Drawing influence from The Thermals, The Pixies, as well as their peers in the UK's thriving DIY scene, they kick off with a video from the album's first cut, Leaving Parties Early - which will be released in early April. If there was one song on the record that could truly define Happy Accidents, latest single 'Leaving Parties Early' would be the one. With sugar-coated choruses and 'four to the floor' disco drums, the band's sonic urgency may speak volumes on its own; but the disparity between the music and the lyrics showcases the great dichotomy of Happy Accidents. Dealing with matters such as anxiety and societal pressures, the song raises questions of identity within the context of attending parties where you don't quite know if you fit in. This contrast runs throughout the record, with the band pairing introspective lyrics with the biggest hooks they can muster. Formed by brothers Rich and Neil Mandell and Phoebe Cross back in 2014, Happy Accidents craft the kind of earworms that will be rattling round your head for months to come - fusing their deep-seated love of 90s punk and indie, whilst still managing to sound as fresh as any of their contemporaries. Quickly making a name for themselves in DIY punk circles, they've shared stages with the likes of The Front Bottoms, Martha, Muncie Girls, and countless others.
