Single Review – The Maccabees – Something Like Happiness


The new single from the Maccabees will be found on their forthcoming fourth studio album titled Marks to Prove It and out on July 31st. ‘Something Like Happiness is a track that has shades of Elbow in it’s instrumentation and arrangement with a little bit more noise and whilst the contemplative verses hold some worth, the verses sound pretty empty and a little unimaginative as you wait for that part to be over with. To put it simply, don’t do Elbow if it can’t be delivered as well and if that sound has already been worn thin. A nice track, but not one to get you excited for their new album.
