Time Out New York calls The Happy Problem "a happy-go-lucky Hole." NEW video at http://youtu.be/ByooaJ10Gg8.
Born from the fighting energy of punk and the love of tuneful pop, and citing influences from Duran Duran to Gogol Bordello, the NYC alt pop band have just released their first full-length album, Head Case, with 11 melodic punk tunes, including the new single, "Curvature," with accompanying music video just released on the band's YouTube page. The songs have earned placements on ABC, CW, MTV and more and enthusiastic response from bloggers and podcasters alike, (including UK's DarkCompass.com) as well as airplay on tastemaker stations across the US including KROQ in Los Angeles.
The band was founded in LA by former folkie Samantha 'Sam' Shaber who, after releasing albums and touring the US and UK for several years on her own, got bored with the coffeehouse bean grinders and earnest soul-searching. She recruited players from Gnarls Barkley and The Fray to record The Happy Problem's debut EP, quickly landing song placements in film and TV, before packing up and moving home to NYC to record the follow-up, Head Case.
Shaber's booming, raspy voice can also be heard during an infamous Olivia Wilde in the Weinstein release, BUTTER, starring Hugh Jackman and Jennifer Garner, on the song "Harder Deeper Faster" which she cowrote with dance-rock collective The Bashful.
