Scotland’s making some noise at the mo. Happy Particles are a 7-piece progressive rock ensemble who make lush Mogwai-style dreamy tunes.
I can’t believe I just used the word lush. To date they have been playing shows, again restricted to their native Scotland, and have been bigged up by the likes of Vic Galloway, The Scotsman (the paper, not Vic Galloway), and the quite-awesome Tellison. If it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for us (to quote one Killing Moon associate, “it’s the first time I’ve listened to this sort of music and not been completely bored off my tits from it”) and gee-willickers it should be good enough for you. The band are currently recording an album and preparing to release a single from it. Keep your eyes on these dudes.
