Happy Music: 'Happy Up Here' by Royksopp
I've been following this Norwegian electronic duo for close to a decade now. And I think they've even been together longer than that! Their music first caught my ear when I sampled the debut album 'Melody A.M.', and I was instantly hooked. They seemed very unique back then and still do, even now. You just have to hear a bit to know what I mean.
The song I want to tell you about today is 'Happy Up Here'. It's off of the latest album 'Junior' and it really is aptly titled. The vibe on this track seems to radiate happiness throughout! I even like the cover art on the single (see below). Isn't it lovely?
The music video is great, too! Big production values and neat imagery. At first, you don't know where it's going, but then you quickly realize that it's turning into a life-size 'Space Invaders' video game... It's a total trip!
