BBC 6 Music-playlisted singer-songwriter Ailbhe Reddy has shared ‘Looking Happy’ ahead of the release of debut album ‘Personal History’ on 2 October. Ailbhe has already played Glastonbury, Primavera and Latitude and has a support slot confirmed on Big Thief’s 2021 tour.
‘Looking Happy’ finds Ailbhe explaining how easy it is to look at the actions of exes in the age of social media – and how this can conjure up a range of conflicting emotions and anxieties: ‘I see you looking happy on my telephone screen. See you got a new job ’cause it’s staring at me. See you got a new life back home without me. I can’t make it stop – just turn it off’
