There’s an exuberance running right through So So Happy, the first release from new alt-duo LA84 that puts it somewhere in Ting Tings territory, only with a bucket-load more verve and energy, combined with the no fuss no frills rock of Peter, Bjorn and John in their pre-Homebase, pre-Writer’s Block days.

LA84 are Samantha Benderoth and Cameron Walker. So So Happy was co-written and produced with Steve Shebby - known for working with artists such as The Neon Trees and Lindsey Sterling. The band have recently completed their debut EP, and we’re really hoping it finds a label and a release date sometime soon.
