Bay Area Surf-Tinged Alternative/Indie Rockers The Happys Debut New Album ‘ADHD’

The Happys are a Bay Area band composed of four degenerates playing surf-tinged alternative indie rock.

The group’s latest album ‘ADHD’ is out now.

The ‘ADHD’ cover image is a photo of frontman Nick Petty’s beloved father, San Francisco Firefighter Dennis Petty, who passed of cancer in August 2019. The LP was recorded at Donut Time Audio, and Prarie Sun (Tom Waits, Primus, Paul McCartney) with several tracks layered in the studio’s legendary “Waits Room.”

Petty says, “ADHD is an album about how hard it is to relate to the world while struggling with ADHD. And while the album touches on severe loss, it also has a very upbeat feel to it. The title track touches on feeling like everyone is more normal than you and you don’t quite fit and have a disadvantage in the normal world— like you’re always behind and can’t quite hack it. The purpose of the record is not to dwell on things, but more like therapy to people all around the world to listen to and not feel like they are alone.”

‘ADHD’ is available on your favorite streaming platforms.
