Johnny Lloyd – “Happy Humans” (Stereogum Premiere)
Sometimes it can all be as simple as a guy, a guitar, and an 8-track recorder. UK singer-songwriter Johnny Lloyd, formerly of the band Tribes, wrung some serious beauty out of those ingredients on “Happy Humans,” the title track from his upcoming EP. The song’s content is as simple and beautiful as its form, with a chorus that simply celebrates “happy humans in love.” Have a listen below and consider it a respite from all the violence, hatred, and tragedy in the news lately.
Happy Humans will be available as a free download on 8/11.
