Revelino – Happiness Is Mine EP – Review
by Killian Laher

The reissue of the debut album (covered here) comes with a bonus EP of six tracks.  Lead track is a remix of the glorious Happiness Is Mine.  Of the new tracks, Try It On is hard-hitting jangle rock in the mould of That’s What Emily Says.  This and The Only One Alive would certainly have fit in on the debut album.  Ennio is an Americana-tinged instrumental, an absolute guitar-fest with a nod to the recently deceased composer.  Place In The Sun starts out subdued and moody but erupts into guitar heaven.  A complete about turn for the final track Little Bird, a real rocker, almost reminiscent of The Clash’s Should I Stay Or Should I Go.
