New Music

In the same maveric spirit as McSweeny’s Press or the earliest of our self published zines, Happy is an ever growing network of independent Australian writers and journalists whose collective burning passion is to explore and bring to light new art and new Australian music to our ever growing audience, to boldly go where… you get the idea. We write about what we like and what we think you’ll like but most importantly what you probably won’t find any where else. We are non-profit and rely on the generous support of our partners and contributors. The best way to support Happy is to read Happy and share Happy. We are the front page of New Australian Music. Thank you for joining us.
