If anyone reading this has ever wondered what became of Dublin band Revelino the answer comes in the least expected of places. Under the guise of the Beat Club, main man Brendan Tallon and drummer Shane Rafferty play to the most sussed of wedding crowds in the land. In the process the players probably earn more in one night that they earned in a year as Revelino. It’s a pity because over the course of 3 albums Revelino produced a wealth of indie gold. Taking their cues from the Byrds, Beatles and the Beach Boys meant that the produce was always laden with melody and the riffs thick with sucrose possibilities. ‘Happiness Is Mine’ is taken from their self-titled LP (which incidentally was recorded in 8 days and mixed in one long night!) and is characterised by its incandescent chorus and a reliance on predatory chords. It’s classic stuff, perfectly standalone, just biding its time for Sophia Coppola to pluck it from obscurity. KD
