The product of their fading seaside-resort hometown of Littlehampton, Gloo speak for the timeless day to day toil and angst; a rhapsody to lives gone stale, the band's pop laced punk rock is the perfect soundtrack to those in need of a little 21st Century escapism.

Growing up in a place such as Littlehampton on England's south coast, 20 miles east of Brighton and a world away from London's bright lights, instils a certain appreciation for life's simple things.

But if we're not here for a time, we might as well have a time, right? How Not To Be Happy, Gloo's second full-length offering and first for esteemed indie label Hassle Records, speaks of that in abundance: 10 tracks of escapism that reflect the drudgery of the everyday but seek to shrug it off over the course of a thirty-minute blur of power-pop, post-grunge and punk rock.

'Ride' and 'Down' are the latest tracks taken from Gloo's upcoming second album, recorded with Jag Jago (The Maccabees, Jamie T, Max Raptor) across the summer of 2020, in-between local lockdowns
