 “Danceable, post-punk influenced indie rock” Brooklyn Vegan

“One of the most exciting up-and-comers around” Clash

Bristol post-punk experts Saloon Dion announce debut EP ‘Muckers’, due for release May 19th via Mucker Records, and share newest effort ‘Happiness’ (video here), out today (March 8th)

The follow-up to frenetic lead single ‘I Don’t Feel’ last month, which garnered praise from the likes of The Independent, DIY Magazine, The New Cue and Rough Trade, Saloon Dion’s latest output delivers on their trademark groove-laden beats and bass riffs, sparking further comparisons to acts such as Beastie Boys and Gang of Four.

Speaking ahead of their upcoming release, the rising quintet explained: “This track is ultimately meant to remind people that it’s never too late to change things up and try new things. If your current path is making you unhappy, then sack it off and find a new one!”

With earlier plaudits from several key indie press champions (NME, So Young, Brooklyn Vegan, Clash, Gigwise), and regular radio spins from BBC 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne/Simone Butler, and BBC Radio 1’s Jack Saunders, Saloon Dion’s profile is certainly building at an impressive rate. On the live front, the band have just completed an acclaimed UK support run alongside Dutch maestros Pip Blom, preceding March dates with Grandmas House and their first ever trip stateside for SXSW (one of the first 26 British acts to be announced).

Saloon Dion’s ‘Happiness’ is out now via Mucker Records and available on all digital platforms here.
