COLUMBIA, SC | May 29, 2018 – Happy., comprising of Tate Logan (Vocals/Rhythm Guitar), Jack Eskridge (Guitar), Caleb Rucker (Drums), and Sean Bowick (Bass), is more than just a pop punk band from Columbia, SC. Formed in 2016, Happy. released a successful EP entitled, The Endless Bummer, before signing with independent record label, Rude Records in early 2018. The band’s mission, to provide a sense of nostalgia for listeners with a sound that is full of infectious melodic hooks, oozing with catchy harmonies. The band has been hard at work since their signing, releasing a string of new singles, including their latest, “Fishtank” recorded, produced and engineered by Will Pugh of Cartel and mastered by Cameron Boucher of Sorority Noise. The single is about being in an unhealthy relationship but not being able to see the issues from the inside. Tate Logan had this to add about the track:

“The line “you say you are red flags but please, rose colored glasses look good on me” actually comes from a line in Bojack Horseman that goes “when you look at someone through rose colored glasses, all the red flags just look like flags” and that stuck with me. Sometimes when you’re caught up in a toxic relationship you can be blinded by the comfort of repetition and familiarity, and fail to listen to what your loved ones are telling you. The message is, sometimes the people who know you best really do have your best interest in mind, and sometimes it’s good to listen to them, even if it’s not what you want to hear.

The single is a follow up to their recent release, “Winona Ryder” which exclusively premiered with PopDust and also recorded, produced and engineered by Will Pugh of Cartel and mastered by Cameron Boucher of Sorority Noise. Tate Logan had this to say:

Winona Ryder is about the infatuation that some guys have with the idea of a “manic pixie dream girl” that doesn’t exist. MPDG is defined as “existing solely in the fevered imaginations of sensitive writers and directors to teach broodingly soulful young men to embrace life and its infinite mysteries and adventures.” The song is about having that desire for this imaginary person to save you from your own toxicity. It’s putting the responsibility on a partner to fix you, when in fact it is your own responsibility to become a better person. I named the song Winona Ryder because I loved her when I was younger and put her on a pedestal. I guess you could say she was my “dream girl.” But, no perfect girl, not even Winona Ryder, is going to swoop in and save you. That’s up to you. That’s your responsibility.”

Earlier this year, Happy. released “Don’t Overdose and Drive,” an infectious track, where the 4-piece got to showcase their inner spirit by taking over a Chuck E. Cheese location for an all out performance in the ultimate ode to the Animatronics. The track is available for purchase here. Tate Logan elaborated:
‘Don’t Overdose and Drive’ is about a very good friend of mine, who I had grown up with my entire life. This individual become involved in drugs to a point where I found myself unable to be around this person and having to distance myself from their lifestyle to preserve my own. It was very sad because I cared so much for them and did everything I could to help, but it comes to a certain point where that person has to decide for themselves to get better. I wrote the song from an “I” perspective to be more relatable and reach a wider audience. At the end of the day, the message of the song is no matter how low you get, and how toxic the situation is, you can always get yourself out and come out on top.”
