We Three’s new single ‘Kissin’ When We’re Mad’ sets the band up to make a major UK breakthrough, and will fuel expectations for the release of their new album ‘Happy’ on May 27th. The release comes ahead of a European tour in October which includes a major London show at Heaven.
‘Kissin’ When We’re Mad’ is a product of frontman, songwriter and producer Manny Humlie’s urge to write intensely personal lyrics from the heart - a trait which has consistently connected with a fanbase that’s always expanding. There are no gimmicks: just timeless songwriting, open-hearted honesty and razor-sharp alt-pop production. It possesses an instant appeal, which was proven by a sold-out crowd singing the song back to them just a day after they posted a teaser for the track.
“Kissin is a manic moment...Just as all hell breaks out a simple kiss can cure it all.”
The song’s video features the star quality performance that fans have come to expect from the band, along with a realisation of the song’s story. Its final moment offers a will they/won’t they cliffhanger.
The time has come for We Three to make a major breakthrough in the UK as they look set to take their Stateside success global. Fuelled by colossal melodies, powerful emotions and exemplary musicianship, the trio are well on their way to breaking the 200 million streams landmark and have exceeded 2.2 million followers on social media. Their audience spans different generations, as shown by their biggest social platforms being TikTok and Facebook.
Completed by Manny’s siblings Bethany Blanchard and Joshua Humlie, the title of We Three’s new album ‘Happy’ reflects their state of mind. Its fourteen songs were all written and produced by Manny. His lyrics explore the twists and turns of relationships, but those hefty themes are at turns infused with humour and self-deprecation. While its moods span the fiery to the funereal, its scope is complemented by the band’s trademark versatility as they stretch from soaring emotional ballads to striking pop party-starters.
