Stop the Chaos in Your Soul With MOP BUCKETS “Happy”

Eric Allen Livingston

Mop Buckets wants to know, are you happy? Their track “Happy” set to the delightfully disorienting artwork of Eric Allen Livingston might just be the best representation of the lifelong struggle for human happiness. The chaotic dance of optimism and pessimism that drives us to do whatever it takes to make order out of it. Speaking of order, the track is off their new EP coming out on Order 05 Records today—order it here!

“Happy” is a noisy punk hammer to the skull to help you break out of the trance of wishing your life was different. Some of us fill our veins with sweet poisons to dull the swirl of happy-sad that makes us sick. Others of us find nirvana by letting go of the need to feel any different from one moment to the next. “Happy” reminds me we’re all just babies pretending we’re grown up enough to rule the world. Today I hope you embrace your inner baby and rock her to sleep while you watch our premiere of Mop Buckets’ new video for “Happy”!
