Happy For Real is the epitome of 1990s indie with “Limerence”


Happy For Real - "Limerence"

Happy For Real’s newest track “Limerence,” released on March 1, opens with a lively, rhythmic electric guitar that launches you into an exciting indie-pop venture. 

The group, based in Grisons, Switzerland, comprises members Olivia Virgolin and Marcus Petendi, both on vocals. They manage to represent 1990s indie music while embodying the legacy of groups like Bloc Party in the present, despite only being in primary school during that time. 

Their latest track “Limerence” reflects their recent edgy and rough musical style while maintaining a catchy and pleasant vibe, with Virgolin singing the verses and Petendi singing the chorus.

In the pre-chorus, they sing, “I would hate for you to get me figured out,” as they build up in this gradual melody before bursting with livelihood in the chorus. There, they sing, “‘Cause I wait until you turn your car around / Crash me out of limerence.” Limerence is a state of involuntary obsession with another person, with a growing taste for purpose.

Happy For Real released their EP, Desperate Art, on March 1, alongside “Limerence,” the lead single from that album.
