US bedroom pop artist girlhouse releases new single ‘happy now’

Following on from the release of her highly-praised debut ‘the girlhouse ep‘ in May, the singles of which found support on BBC Radio 1, BBC 6Music, DUMMY, Under The Radar, WONDERLAND, The Independent, NOTION, The Independent, EARMILK, La Blogotheque, 1883 Magazine, Atwood Magazine, and Record Of The Day, fast-rising bedroom-pop artist girlhouse (aka Lauren Luiz) is returning in stellar form to deliver her incredible new offering ‘happy now’.

While ‘the girlhouse ep’ looked to introduce the world to her fresh and euphoric sound, ‘happy now’ sees her in a state of musical evolution as she adopts a more distinct and breezy direction. Channelling a fresh and captivating indie-rock aesthetic, and coupling it with her rich and passionate voice, her newest release marks a bright and shimmering addition to her ever-impressive catalogue.

Speaking about the new song, she said, “‘happy now’ started as an angry poem towards someone in my life that was really emotionally challenging to me, but as we started producing it and I started looking at the lyrics from a different perspective, I realized I was projecting everything I hated about myself towards this other person. ‘happy now’ is my heart, gladiator screaming “are you not entertained?!” to my body after doing all the things and following all the people that should, in theory, make me happy but in the end left me feeling empty.”
