BIO

It’s was a pretty damn fine year for Happy Accidents and as the alt DIY punk trio launch headlong into album 2, the world is very much their oyster – though you wouldn’t guess it from chatting to them. Despite being lauded by the likes of Noisey, DIY, Kerrang!, Rock Sound, Steve Lamacq, John Kennedy, Huw Stephens, Annie Mac (the list goes on)- the intensely self-aware bunch are just set about getting on with it and creating something even more special for album 2 – alongside playing the likes of Reading and Leeds Festival, 2000 Trees, Truck, Southsea, Hand Made, WTFest, A Carefully Planned and loads more.

Formed by brothers Rich and Neil Mandell and Phoebe Cross back in 2014, Happy Accidents craft the kind of introspective earworms that will be rattling round your head for months to come – fusing their deep-seated love of 90s punk and indie, whilst still managing to sound as fresh as any of their contemporaries. Quickly making a name for themselves in DIY punk circles, they’ve captured the attention of fans and peers alike with with their unique pairing of introspective lyrics with the biggest hooks they can muster. Tours with the likes of Muncie Girls, Doe, Personal Best all followed as they continued to build their presence.

Not content with following the ‘standard band doing standard things’ mantra, the trio are constantly re-evaluating everything, spurning the constant-content-creation demands of social media, bringing insight and genuine original thought into what they’re doing. Happy Accidents aren’t just a band. They’re much more important than that – so expect this year to see them innovate and evolve as well as releasing a collection of cast-iron gloriously written indie hits.
