Happy Particles: Under Sleeping Waves

Under Sleeping Waves Cover Art

Under Sleeping Waves is the debut album from Glasgow band Happy Particles. Upon first listen, one would make the inevitable comparison to Bon Iver or even Sigus Ros, however there is much more to Under Sleeping Waves. The ten tracks showcase a beautifully produced album, with rich vocals and superlative instrumentals. The ambient textures and flowing guitar lines carry the listener up to meet the vocals in a sensual marriage. This is an album that stands on its own and should be appreciated for its own strengths.
