Happy Place is a NYC-based band of two singers, two guitarists, and two drummers, performing music composed by bandleader and drummer Will Mason. Their music draws on microtonal guitar tunings, irregular meters, and angular, virtuosic improvisation. It is equal parts Glenn Branca and James Blood Ulmer; Lightning Bolt and Kaija Saariaho.
Tendrils (2020, Exit Stencil Recordings) is the follow-up to their debut album Northfield (2016, Exit Stencil Recordings), which was praised by Bandcamp Daily as “jittery, manic, and restless,” and by the New York Times for “succeed[ing] at fusing experimental rock and chamber music.”
The band’s line-up includes Charlotte Mundy on vocals, Andrew Smiley and Dan Lippel on guitar, and Kate Gentile and Will Mason on drums.
