    With "Amagosa" Happy Noose dive deeper into the threads of dark pop that woven throughout their debut LP. This time, the band sheds much of the lighter fair for a much heavier and darker sound than previous releases.

    Produced by Tim Green (Nation of Ulysses, the Fucking Champs) at his Louder Studios in Grass Valley, Calf. Happy Noose have crafted a sound that is driving, morose, and laden with pop hooks all at once.

    Three originals and a version of the never-released Joy Division song, "Pictures in My Mind" make up an EP well worth the seven inches of vinyl that make up its whole.

    500 copy, mixed-marbled vinyl run.

    "At first listen, the members’ pedigrees seem to have little bearing on the music they’re making today, yet their execution is characteristically tough and no-frills. For comprising familiar punk, indie-rock and darkwave influences, Happy Noose’s sound is surprisingly hard to pin down... no doubt inspired by a pair of ‘80s Ian‘s, Joy Division‘s Curtis and Echo and the Bunnymen‘s McCulloch... In any case, though, both EPs solidly reflect the trio’s musicianship, chemistry and good taste." -- The Big Takeover

    "back with a rather stellar EP produced by Tim Green who’s produced Melvins, Bikini Kill and more. On the title track “Amagosa” Happy Noose’s vocalist Ryan belts out his bold baritone notes over a steadily distorted guitar put through a vortex of pedals – ultimately, it’s a great opening track to settle the listener in for the next few songs."

about

Amagosa finds the trio digging deeper into their bag of tricks. Darker, with more hooks, and a more diverse subject matter than the bands debut lp Amagosa is a record that finds a band finding more than their voice.

about

Happy Noose Olympia, Washington

Happy Noose is plangent, dirty, dark pop. Their music aches with desire, it is morose, yet joyful with a real swaggering gait. Happy Noose is striving to craft their own sound, a vision of punk rock that embraces musical elements from the past and present. ... more
