First Impressions: Sam Sparro Is Makin' Happy
Thursday, February 23, 2012
So...."The Shallow End" was a basically a warm-up for what Sam Sparro has in his bag of tricks, because he had this little corker waiting in the wings---and by corker I mean, this one pops as if champagne provoked it to do so. The now official first single to Sparro's pending, Return To Paradise, can be simply defined as "musical sunshine", and it pretty much discredits that groundhog who 'claimed' that we will be having six more weeks of winter. As if! Not with this slice of summery disco-fied funk in our midst. "Happiness" also confirms the rumor about Paradise's 90's House influence, and well it's all exposed on the backing piano riffs. Unfortunately, "Happiness" is only available for download in his homestead of Australia as of current---which is pretty damn silly. I mean, with one listen of this, you'll want to download this immediately. Hopefully, it'll soon be available for all to download, but in the meantime a stream is sufficing. As this week crawls to a close, hearing that jangling piano keyed intro and Sparro sounding utterly spirited just made the weekend happen right here and now.
