Much-loved Brisbane surfgaze four-piece The Double Happiness are releasing their highly-anticipated (and aptly-titled) debut album Surfgazing (through local indie 4000 Records) and as part of the celebrations are hitting Sonic Sherpa for a free, all ages showcase of their sun-swept post-punk-slash-shoegaze-sorta aural goodness!
Surfgazing is a reverb-drenched ode to afternoons spent sun-kissed and wave-side, to letting the wind take your hand as it dangles out the car window along the highway and to ‘60s beach parties and the dance crazes that accompanied them.
As scene legend Kellie Lloyd (Screamfeeder, Majestic Horses, Deafcult) recently offered: “The intersection of a Valium hazed B-52s in a nature deco directed by Quentin Tarantino set in the Bay Islands circa 1987 soundtracked by Dick Dale is where you’ll find this album by The Double Happiness”. Hell yeah!
