SPEAKER PROFILE: LET'S BUY HAPPINESS
http://2010.thinkingdigital.co.uk/speak ... .php?id=87

Drowned in Sound – Class of 2010

"Clearly already on their way to greatness."
Tom Robinson, BBC 6Music

"Let’s Buy Happiness are going to be your favourite new band. Vocalist Sarah Hall’s voice is beautifully tender, quite unlike anything I’ve heard before- it has a gorgeous subtle frailty to it that draws the listener in and holds them fast."
NARC.

"Delay-smothered guitars and wordy lyrics shot through with an air of impending doom. The highlight of their five-song debut EP, No Hot Ashes, is Devil Show, a wonderfully skewed pop ditty brought to life by Sarah Hall’s restless vocals."
Metro

Influenced by North American alt-indie bands and mixing delayed guitar soundscapes with compelling vocals reminiscent of Liz Fraser of Cocteau Twins, Let’s Buy Happiness stand apart from the typical sound normally associated with the North East.

The band has supported The Temper Trap, Vivian Girls and Idlewild in Newcastle on their sell-out tours, played for T4’s Outside-In Festival and have more high profile gigs are booked for 2010, including the Topman CTRL gig with The Futureheads, Evolution Festival and Glastonbury Festival (John Peel Stage).

With a DIY approach to their music and artwork, Let’s Buy Happiness self-released debut EP ‘No Hot Ashes’.

The EP has garnered much local and national interest. Lead track ‘Works Better on Paper’ has received multiple plays by Tom Robinson and Lauren Laverne at BBC 6Music and ‘Devil Show’ was chosen by Drowned in Sound editor Sean Adams as part of his ‘Class of 2010’ feature.

The ‘No Hot Ashes’ EP is available online now, with a follow-up single planned for June 2010.
