Discovery: Couldn’t Be Happiers

Over this festive period, we’ve got a chance to look back at some of the artists we got to hear this year but never shared with you. Next up is American indie folk duo Couldn’t Be Happiers with their track Shut Up!

By Graeme Smith

Shut Up! is a track that rails against the 24-hour news cycle and general pace of modern life. The track is aurally bubbling with anger and frustration, from it’s heavy percussion to piercing vocals. It feels like a song at war with itself, trying to find peaceful interludes but always getting lost in a higher tempo, such is life.
