Break-up music is often the most powerful. From Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Rumours’ to Kanye West’s ‘808’s & Heartbreak’, the best artists channel their emotional torment into music with universal appeal. Which brings us neatly onto the Tears of Happiness extraordinary dance pop project.
“The catalyst for the project was my relationship falling apart at the same time as losing my best friend to mental illness” explains singer songwriter Meeda. “So I rang LCamz and asked if I could come and pour my heart out in his vocal booth. Everything has spiralled from there.”
In that time the duo - made up of singer songwriter Me’da and charismatic studio boffin LCamz - has sparked feverish excitement among industry insiders about their music. The reason? A sound which combines the existential clout of Depeche Mode with the euphoric uplift of Calvin Harris.
As independent artists their achievements have already surpassed anyone’s expectations. With only their third release to date reaching number 12 in the official Spotify streaming charts in Luxembourg. Their chart position put them alongside some of the biggest artists on the planet; Post Malone; Jonas Brothers; Billie Eilish; Sam Smith; Lewis Capaldi; Ed Sheeran; and Camila Cabello to name but a few. This just sounds like a case of musical serendipity.
TOH’s music hits both the head and the feet, but it tugs remorselessly on the heartstrings.
