Trails and Ways Oakland-based Trails and Ways will be releasing their new album Own It on 7 October, and have released Happiness as the second single from it.

Keith from the band says “it’s about whether the human pursuit of happiness is impossible. This song is my answer to an argument with an old friend. She says, if you have to try to be happy, then it’s fake happiness. But I think that attitude can leave you stuck in pride for your hip, authentic depression. I think seeking real happiness means you have to be honest when you’re not, and that’s the scarier path. Happiness: you won’t find it easier for long.

“I was thinking about all that when Ian sent me a groovy new drumbeat, and in one hot afternoon I tracked these California-punky dreampop guitars and vocals on it. Madeline Kenney sings back & forth with me throughout.

“Also today announcing our album release tour across North America. (Dates below!) Rock on.”
