The alt-rock that is crafted by Happy Lives during their Sick Love link together acts like Weezer and Cake, adding a sick bass line and a certain funk that works masterfully with the song’s wry vocals. Punctual, perfectly produced, and polished, Sick Love is something that deserves high rotation on alternative stations. The track may only occupy four minutes, but there is a surprising depth here that few artists would be able to muster in a space of time twice that. Happy Lives make for something beautiful, musically intricate, and catchy. Here’s to hoping they can continue to create this special sort of soul.
