Happy Little Clouds: Rock you feel in your gut.
Happy Little Clouds is a Boston-based indie rock band whose songs will stick with you rain or shine. The band’s unfiltered, heartfelt lyrics are layered over bluesy vocals, a vintage rock sound, and catchy melodies.
". . . insanely catchy brand of indie-rock. . ."
On their debut album, "Shift," which premiered July 9, 2016 and was produced, recorded and mixed by Portland, ME legend Jonathan Wyman, Happy Little Clouds captures the emotional rollercoaster of discovering love and lust while on the journey for inner truth and that brief nostalgic moment that strikes just before everything changes forever.
Happy Little Clouds, the brain-child of Jac Mestel, began in 2010 and has featured a lineup of several talented local musicians over the years. The band's first studio album, which debuted July 9, 2016, features Jac on lead vocals and guitar along with long-time member Alex Toorish on drums and Kelly Vaden on bass. The current line up of the band includes Jac Mestel on vocals and guitar, Rainy Maple Logan on drums, and the newest member, Beck Goguen on bass.
Happy Little Clouds calls the Boston area home, though they have performed across New England, including a gig at the Hartford, CT leg of the 2012 Van's Warped Tour, after winning the Ourstage.com 2012 Warped Tour Regional Competition for their song, "Somebody Help Me Forget." In July 2016, Happy Little Clouds released their first studio album, "Shift," which was recorded by Jonathan Wyman over five days at The Halo, a converted barn outside Portland, Maine. The sold-out album release show took place at O'Brien's Pub in Allston where the band brought together their favorite local artists, poets and musicians and held an art auction that raised $500 for the non-profit, Girl's Rock Campaign Boston.
Other notable performances include opening for the popular 90s "queer-core" band, Pansy Division, at ONCE Ballroom in September, and opening for Madame Gandhi aka Kiran Gandhi former drummer for M.I.A.
