ALICE HUBBLE POWER PLAY
On 19th May, Alice Hubble dropped her first new tune in over a year with 'Power Play' the first track to be taken from her forthcoming album on Happy Robots.
Written in March 2020, Alice found herself channelling a lot of anger into the single. “The track is my comment on what happens in a post #metoo world, once the worst offenders have been ‘cancelled’ and caught and the news stories have ended".
The track is available on our Bandcamp and on all the major digital platforms such as Spotify. If you like it please add it to your playlists. The video is also available on our YouTube.

TIM'S TWITTER LISTENING PARTY
On April 12th Happy Robots head honcho Adam Cresswell (known also as Rodney Cromwell) contributed to a Tim’s Listening Party over on Twitter.
If you don’t know what a listening party is, it’s a Twitter event curated by TIM BURGESS of THE CHARLATANS. The deal is, listeners / tweeters all put on the same record at the same time, listen and chat with the artists where they share their innermost secrets about the records
For this party, the soundtrack and discussion was related to the second album by Adam’s old band SALOON ‘If We Meet In The Future’. Released in 2003 and acclaimed by the likes of NME and Pitchfork, it’s also the album that features the song 'Happy Robots'. Joining the chat were other former Saloon members, Amanda Gomez, Alison Cotton and Matt Ashton of THE LEAF LIBRARY.
Big thanks to Pete Paphides for making this happen. If you missed the event, you can follow it again on the Listening Party Replay
