“THE HAPPY MESS is an ecletic project from a multi-faceted indie band signed to SONY Music Portugal. The band has been playing at the most important venues and festivals in Portugal – NOS Alive, Vodafone Paredes de Coura, Super Bock Super Rock, Meo Marés Vivas (among others). Recently THE HAPPY MESS was invited to Eurosonic Noorderslag Festival 2017 (NL).
On their second album Half Fiction they’ve set themselves free, reappearing as a more playful and experimental group. They serve emotional songs that go from pop to rock and have their electronic moments.
The singles from the first album, “Morning Sun” and “Backyard Girl”, report more than 1 million of visualizations on YouTube. These songs which were for long time on portuguese radio tops were also synchronized with soap operas and with an advertisement for TOYOTA.
The portuguese five piece is known for live performances full of energy bringing together the audience and the band in a party atmosphere.”
