Track of the Day: Only Real – Can’t Get Happy

We’ve featured Only Real, aka the project of South Londoner Niall Galvin, before, but this new track ‘Can’t Get Happy’ has really struck a chord with us today.

It’s the lead single off his debut album ‘Jerk At The End Of The Line’ that’s out March 30th on Virgin EMI and, from what we can tell, is a melancholy ode to the never-ending bleakness of that special kind of depression that can only follow a broken heart.

Serving as a kind of centrepiece to the album and swinging from roadside twang to a wash of cosmic guitar squiggles and thundering drums, the refrain of “can’t get happy” is strangely comforting and anthemic.
