Press release - New Hallelujah Picassos single sweetens up your summer
The Picassos return from their studio hibernation with a brand new ditty, just in time for summer. Happy Smile (Naive In Joy) is a gentle, lilting, guitar and keys take on alt/indie pop.
The song is inspired by The Peasant Dance, a work by the Dutch painter Bruegel. In this case, the Picassos are minstrels and troubadours meandering thru the landscape of the painting.
This tune follows on from their most recent EP release, Bullet That Breaks The Key, and single Dirty Suits, and is the latest step in the journey towards a new album for the ensemble, due out next year.
Happy Smile was recorded at Tone Exchange, engineered by Darryn Patterson Harkness, and written and produced by Hallelujah Picassos. Mastered by Angus McNaughton at Auralux. Released on Loopy Fruit Recordings, 2017. Cat no PCORP008.
Released via digital on December 5, 2017
