    Hailey, It Happens are an electronic music duo from Boston, MA who have been friends and collaborators since they were 13 years old. Last Friday they released their brand new self-titled album. The album is now up on Bandcamp, Spotify, and Apple Music. Two and a half years after their last EP, Under the Brilliant Lights, and recorded during time stolen between full-time jobs as an accountant and a teacher, the record chronicles 36 consequential months in the duo’s lives.

    Between the first session with veteran producer Jon Taft (The Saddest Landscape, Bearstronaut, Morne) and the last layered harmony, songs about girlfriends became songs about fiancés and then wives. Songs were informed by visiting places all over the world. The muse for songs of hurt and goodbye on past records became the inspiration for new songs about a blossoming relationship. And during every break between fevered writing and recording sessions, the face of the music world changed, and these two music obsessives listened to, absorbed and repurposed a whole world of new sounds into their own aesthetic.

    If you’re looking for a song to start with, try streaming “Dandelion” below.

    The band is also on Facebook and Twitter.

    My thanks to Hailey, It Happens for sponsoring Chorus this week.

    Accountant and teacher? I would've thought male models.

    I geeked out when Bobby first showed me that lyric.

    Glad you enjoy it, man.

    Just wanted to pop into this thread to say that this sponsorship really worked on me. I hadn't ever heard of Hailey, It Happens, but after the writeup I bought the album on iTunes and absolutely love it – a late contender for my top 10 of 2016.
