Only Real’s latest single is called ‘Can’t Get Happy’ but it’s a lie, he hand picks 5 songs that always get him super happy.
Up and coming West London lad, Only Real, is releasing his track Can’t Get Happy ahead of his debut album Jerk at the End of the Line at the end of March. The catchy youthful anthem is infectious. We’ve been watching Only Real aka Niall Galvin since his “Cadillac Girl” days, and are excited that his quirky take on spoken word-esque tracks are blowing up.
Galvin’s sunshine beats and trippy videos can brighten the gloomiest days. With a playlist promising a happy feel good vibe, we salute you Only Real for making this Monday a little bit easier. That sideways smirk helps too. Rep Real.
The New Birth – “You Don’t Have to be Alone”
Feel good Motown number coming with the truth and the light. You don’t have to be alone Only Real is here for ya!
Pond – “Medicine Hat”
Nice song to get lost in, starts off quite minimal and by the end it’s covered in cosmic tekkers.
Washed Out – “All I Know”
Equally cosmic equally mood enhancing, this is my jam baby!
Atlas Sound – “Mona Lisa”
Easy listening dreamy living kiss it.
The Addrisi Brothers – “We’ve Got To Get It On Again”
Kind of actually a sad sentiment but it’s still an absolutely safe tune.
Only Real’s new single “Can’t Get Happy” and album Jerk At The End Of The Line are both out 30th March. Only Real tours the UK in April and May.
