article imageReview: Happy Abandon superb on new studio album 'Facepaint' Special

By Markos Papadatos     Aug 29, 2017 in Music
Orchestral indie band Happy Abandon have released their breakthrough studio album "Facepaint," independently, on August 25.
Facepaint opens with the hypnotic "Ivory Bound," which features soaring harmonies from the band. They pick up the pace with the upbeat and infectious "Beneath Our Feet" and the laid-back and mellow "Love Like Language." The listener can recall the musical work of The Civil Wars.
"Take Me" is a crisp ballad, and "Severed Seams" is melodically stunning. Equally haunting yet beautiful is "Choice." The unflinching "If I Stare" has a stirring vibe to it, while "Stop Taking Care of Me" is soothing and delicate. "Heavy Lines" is more uptempo, and it closes on a fitting note with the heart-wrenching ballad "Cursed or Worse."
Happy Abandon hails from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The band is comprised of Peter on guitar and lead vocals, Jake on percussion and background vocals, as well as Justin on bass and backing vocals.
With this album, the group takes the listeners on an authentic, musical journey through the wide range of emotions that adults experience as they face the unexpected challenges that life throws at them.
Facepaint is available on iTunes.
The Verdict
Overall, Happy Abandon delivers on their brand new studio album Facepaint. There is a lot of variety on this musical project, and it is definitely a keeper. This CD garners an A rating.
