The new single ‘Happy Alone’ from Irish band Magazines is indicative that they are one of the most exciting new artists on the indie scene. The track features a swirling blend of percussion and guitar hooks, as lead singer Cath Leahy sings with a sweet and sultry vocal. Her voice adds a tenderness to the lo-fi indie-rock grittiness, and it complements the heart-felt lyrics of the song. Further elevated by heavenly harmonies, this is an authentic and empowering indie track that will be enjoyed by fans of any genre.
Having released a handful of singles since their debut in 2019, Magazines quickly gained attention on the Dublin live music scene. Their influences include Wolf Alice, Pillow Queens and Bombay Bicycle Club amongst others, but Magazines are creating an original and irresistible sound. ‘Happy Alone’ is their best single to date, and we look forward to hearing more.
