New Music | Happy Dagger – Indian Summer
by Ryan Doyon, a music loving, world traveling, hockey loving, Star Wars nerd. If you play music I want to know about it.
[P]ortland, OR songwriter Jesse Robertson creates music under the moniker Happy Dagger and has recently released his first EP, available now through Soundcloud. The self-titled release is a 4-song collection of beautifully crafted, glam infused, psych-rock that is sure to make the day swirlingly better.
This is a 100% bedroom project, as he wrote, recorded, and produced everything you hear coming through your speakers on his own. Robertson taught himself how to play guitar, drums, and piano about ten years ago, and the now 20 year old musician has a collection of tunes that reflect the hard work and determination of an artist making it on his own. When Happy Dagger takes his show on the road he will do so as a 5-piece band to fully incorporate the intricate sound layered together in his debut.
Check out the great track “Indian Summer” above and head over to Happy Dagger’s Soundcloud page to check out the rest of his fantastic eponymous debut. Someone needs to sign this guy quick!
