GUPPY album "Something Is Happening..." produced by Sarah Tudzin (illuminati hotties, boygenius) out now!

On May 17th, LA-based artist GUPPY releases their album "Something Is Happening..." via Lauren Records. Produced by Sarah Tudzin (illuminati hotties, boygenius), the album was recorded at Elliott Smith’s old studio, New Monkey in Van Nuys. The album reflects a collaborative effort with equal contributions from each member, resulting in a sonic hero's journey venturing from ambient wistfulness, to post punk irreverence, to sincere indie crooning, to playful garage rock, and returning back again to the beginning, but this time you’re changed. 

The themes of "Something is Happening..." speak to a feeling of hopelessness, born from the realization that the system is not here to protect us, and an accompanying emergence of hope as we invest in and lean on our communities. GUPPY rejects nihilism, relishes in absurdism, and ultimately agrees with poet Khalil Gibran that, “the deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain.” The album is made up of observations about absurd specifics that either want to kill us or celebrate us, and sometimes GUPPY can’t differentiate between the two:

“Why does it smell like scrambled eggs when I’m driving on the freeway? What’s the difference between love and hate when I feel it in my body?”
