Let’s Buy Happiness – Dirty Lakes

Now that I’ve finally gotten a chance to listen to Let’s Buy Happiness, I’m kind of sort of a lot of completely obsessed with them.

This five piece from Newcastle makes some insanely catchy indie pop gems that put an ever widening grin on your face. While I’m not all that familiar with the scene in Newcastle, their melodic guitars, textured sound, and laidback exuberance, seems more like something out of Canada’s effervescent music scene a la Land of Talk or Reverie Sound Revue.

I suppose it doesn’t hurt that Sarah Hall’s adorable voice sounds a bit like Elizabeth Powell’s in that it’s full of folksy warmth yet has the cold distance of the stars (yea that was an odd way to put it, but there’s no other way to describe it).

Check out the fantastic video to “Dirty Lakes” below and head over to bandcamp to pick up their other singles and debut EP.
