The Double Happiness are back, and ready to launch their new single 'Smoking Gun' at The Bearded Lady on Saturday August 6.

Doors: 8pm
Set times: TBA

THE DOUBLE HAPPINESS have swapped out their surfboards for steeds as the band showcase their love of Spaghetti-Western surf guitar on 'Smoking Gun', the first release off the upcoming album 'Roadhouse' on 4000 Records.

The song speaks of a close call, and a chance to get away in the nick of time. The protagonist is implored to, 'Run, baby run' as the gunsmoke is a telling sign of a misadventure. Opening with a disarming trumpet and nylon guitar, the song then evolves into the 'call and response vocals' which are a signature of TDH.

The song features the bass lines and vocals of Meg Welchman, beloved member of the quartet who passed tragically in February this year.

Brisbane singer-songwriter Jimi Beavis and bass player Janey Mac are THE WICKED MESSENGER; their folk music project exploring death and love.

SHIFTING SANDS beginning was intentional. Of this there can be no doubt. Though the initial intention still remains a mystery the result from this beginning can only be described as a “happy accident”.

Geoff Corbett (SixFtHick) and Dylan McCormack (Gentle Ben & his Sensitive Side, The Polaroids) glued together words and music as a post-work debrief to take the edge off dealing with life’s little realities of someone else’s problems in a Drug & Alcohol unit in a faraway hospital.

It was never meant to mean anything. But it did.

At the core Corbett and McCormack along with a revolving door of Brisbane’s finest managed to spit out something not heard and not tried on the stage-boards for quite some time, maybe forever ( in northern climes at least). It was tagged down-beat, depresso-core. The Sands were the quietest heaviest band around and still are.

The debut album “Beach Coma” released on Melbourne’s Spooky and France's Beast label garnered critical acclaim on both Australian shores and the European continent, its sound breezing from midnight moonlight shimmer pop to tomb-stoning surf to RSL heartbreakers and back.

This event takes place on the unceded sovereign lands of the Jagera and Turrbal peoples. We acknowledge and pay respect to the true custodians of this land; past, present and emerging.
