Winter Moods have once again hit the airwaves with a fresh new sound.

Happy, from their latest album The Journey, is different to previous releases – the mood and the feel of the song are reminiscent of their critically acclaimed album Morning Ale, which had taken the Maltese music scene by storm back in 2000.

“The song reminds us of the great times we had whilst recording The Journey. It has a certain attitude and although the lyrics are inherently sarcastic, it still carries a positive feel. The song has a strong, distinctive brass presence which is also a rarity in our sound. We all had an extra bit of fun with it at the studio and this is also clearly evident when we perform it live. It just creates a great vibe, and the crowd joins in automatically. It’s uplifting,” says Ivan Grech.

Happy has also been accompanied by a video which was filmed during their memorable 30th anniversary concert at Fort St Elmo in June, which had raised €40,300 for Puttinu Cares.

Performed by Winter Moods featuring Mark Farrugia on trumpet and Dennis ‘Kurun’ Camilleri on trombone, Happy was penned by Ivan Grech and recorded and produced by David Vella at Temple Studios, Mistra. The video was filmed and edited by Motion Blur.

Winter Moods are supported by Renault, Hamilton Travel, DAB, BMIT Ltd, and Olimpus Music.
