Bleeding Heart Pigeons – O Happy, Happy, Happy

Based in Limerick, Ireland, Bleeding Heart Pigeons are an alt-rock three-piece formed by drummer Brendan McInerney, Cathal Histon (synth, sampling) and guitarist / lead-singer Mícheál Keating. The band dropped an EP last year through AMF Records, a new imprint which is home of Loyle Carner, INHEAVEN and Gilligan Moss, before moving on Virgin, through which they’ll release their debut album Is next month. O Happy, Happy, Happy is the lead single from the record, an overwhelming tune that conveys an overflowing sense of urgency and makes the Irish band sound like a raw version of Ought. Moreover, Bleeding Heart Pigeons’ upcoming LP is the work of a man, Mícheál Keating, afraid of “inevitable death, loss, change or any kind of tragedy that could strike at any moment.

Is will be out on February 12th via Virgin.
