Olga Garcia Saw them open up for Dead Sara in San Francisco and they killed it! Go catch them live one day :).

This album is energetic, punk, grunge, raw, and rock mixed together. Jessica, Rebecca and Mike are pretty awesome! Favorite track: The Truth.

Conan Neutron Listen: if you are looking for sharp, incisive and very smart music. You've got it. Rebecca Bortman is one of my favorite front people going right now, just a powerhouse dynamo of energy and talent. It's been great seeing this band develop and level up. They could become... Unstoppable! RIYL: Blondie, X-Ray Spex, DEVO, Bikini Kill, uh... man... killer live shows? Get off my back already wouldya? Favorite track: That Activity.

about

Happy Fangs San Francisco, California

"A raucous force of noisy guitar and anthemic vocals that thrill me like the late-1970s sounds of X-Ray Spex, Siouxsie, & Suburban Lawns." Boing Boing

Happy Fangs is a war-painted and wiry rock trio. Rebecca brings her high-energy vocals. Mr. Cobra brings his grit-pop guitar. Jess brings her hard-hitting melodic beats.

Track Name: Hiya Kaw Kaw
I grew up birdlike
With a skin so thin
To a family squawking
Serious wisdom
When you got something
That you can't keep tinned
Momma says
Better out than in.
Better out than in.
Chorus:
Hiya Kaw Kaw Kaw Kaw Kaw Kaw Kaw Kaw
Hiya Kaw Kaw Kaw Kaw Kaw Kaw Kaw Kaw

Swallow your sharpness
One too many times
It'll come to peck you
From the gut inside
Venom is vicious
But that debris in your heart
Is like a vulture schooled in martial arts

[Chorus]
Dollhouse dawn, getting hammered on, dream no no no no no.
Fork in your chin with da folks laughing, cry no no no no no.
Cut through a snake with butter knife steak, that’s a no no no no no.
Dinosaur show with your chocolate beaux, no one said no no no no no.

[Chorus to the kaw kaw]
Track Name: That Activity
Chorus:
I don’t know what you think you’re doing
After school but I bet you’re screwing
Some girl who clearly isn’t me
I’m too shrewd for that activity
That activity, that activity...me and my jealousy...about that activity
I've chosen books over boys
But these sheets don't look quite as coy
As you when you say to me
I get off work at three
That's right when school will let out
I’ll try to maintain my doubts
About your true sympathies
And not say take me please
[Chorus]

I could drive home in your cloud
Vaccines blasting so loud
My neighbors mailbox would shake
As you secure the brake
Making yourself a strong case
The struggle shows on my face
Your fingers become my comb

[Chorus]
Track Name: Midnight Monsters
Monsters will take over your land
Your buildings, they will turn to sand.
You’ve seen a lot of things
You didn’t think would happen,
But it is all changing now and changing here.
Chorus:
We’re on the ground. We’re on the ground.
We’re gonna take you down with us.
Don’t, don’t don’t don’t mess around:
We’re gonna take you down with us.
No one will ever tell you the truth
If you do not ask them to.
You can stay at home in your room.
You can cry at home if you want to.
But no one will ever tell you the truth
If you do not ask them to
No one, no one will tell you to truth
Unless you less you bless you bless you, ask them toooo!
Chorus:
Don’t mess around. Lost on the ground.
We’re gonna take you down with us.
Don’t, don’t don’t don’t mess around:
we’re gonna take you down with us.
Oh you guys, oh you guys, oh you guys guys
You gotta shut up now.
Explosions everywhere. There’s fire in your hair.
Someone is telling you: you’ve got to duck and screw.
Butter, butter, butter, oh, oh, oh oh
Butter, butter, butter, oh, oh, oh oh
Butter, butter, butter, oh, oh, oh oh
Butterballs are the first to go.
Chorus:
Take it down. Take it down. We gotta take you down with us.
Take it round. Take it round. Take it round.
We gotta take you down with us.
Track Name: The Truth
I want to tell you
Something that might, might scare you
I want to tell you the truth
You’re going fall, gonna fall, gonna fall
In a well. Nobody gonna save you. No hell.
Fall, fall, fall, fall, so far.
Fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fall.
Fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fall.
Fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fall so far.
Through the drains and the pipes to the ocean
Nobody's gonna see you til you’re floating.
Ones that do will be breathing through their gills.
I'm the girl on the rocky bluff
half babe, half fishy stuff.
All lonely. Not homely.
You wanna be my one and only.
But the girls you have hurt have told me
You need to hear sirens sing
Chorus:
Fuck, yeah, you know it.
Fuck, yeah. you show it.
Oh oh oh. Oh oh oh.
Think you know. Think it so. Think you know.
Oh, oh, you think you know
On an episode of the love boat
Oh, oh, you think you know.
No mermaid in her right mind will go.
No mermaid in her right mind would know
No ya no ya no ya no ya don’t.

[Chorus]
Fuck, yeah, you knew it.
Fuck, yeah. you blew it.
Oh oh oh. Oh oh oh.
[Chorus]
Track Name: Perk Up
Chorus:
I don't mind if you corrupt,
'cause I know it all goes around
I love the way that you perk up
When it's time to get down.
We've found this old-time healing
And it's running through our bones
In our memes we hide our feelings
In our lust, h baby baby, we have found home. Oh baby, when we’re alone.
Oh QB, let it be known.
Curtains ain't closed.
There's something else. There's something else,
There's something in the water now
I can't help from drinking it.
But I taste a problem round here.
[Chorus]
Your pigskin sheets and my nosebleed seats
What I’d do to see your feet no cleats.
Now there's someone blue.
Someone screwed,
Someone new.
Someone booed.
I don't know whose now
I don't know drinking it.
But they found a daughter right here.
[Chorus]
Why why why try? When you can't hide.
You don't know what you ruined.
Going going la la la la...
Oh you, do you know the pain you put me through.
Going back to wiretap.
Cage up all the words you crapped.
Thought the gloves could make the kid.
Turns out touchdowns actually did
Untangled my heart and soul.
Rust has burned it through with holes.
One thing that I know is true
That perk can't lie the way you do.
Nick-knack nick-knack nick-knack boo, I am not her. Forgot you.
And I will not come back for another dose of your penicillin hack.
Yeah.
Track Name: Lion Inside You
In tall grass, you sight your victim
Then to the den, to nawl and lick them
But at at at at your core
You want some more.
I can not name our criiiiime.
But what was once subliiiiime
Is now not worth my tiiiime.
But you wanted some more.
I listened before
Calling for war
You better hear me roar!
There’s a lion inside you.
Feed it, it bites you.
There’s a lion inside you.
Feed it, it bites you.
Be it, it likes you.
I see for the first tiiime
That on your social cliiiimb
You lost your hopeful miiiind
You better watch out now. Out now.
Oh oh oh oh. Out now. Out now.
Oh oh oh oh. Out now. Out now.
Oh oh oh oh.
Cause you wanted some more.
I listened before
Calling for war
You better hear me roar!
There’s a lion inside you.
Feed it, it bites you..
There’s a lion inside you.
Feed it, it bites you.
Be it, it likes you.
There’s a lion inside you.
Feed it, it bites you.
There’s a lion inside you.
Feed it, it bites you.
Be it, it likes you.
When you gonna be the same.
When you gonna be the same.


You better watch out now. Out now.
Oh oh oh oh. Out now. Out now.
Oh oh oh oh. Out now. Out now.
You better watch out now. Out now.
Oh oh oh oh. Out now. Out now.
Out now. Out loud
There’s a lion inside you.
Feed it, it bites you.
There’s a lion inside you.
Feed it, it bites you.
Be it, it likes you.
When will you learn.
When will you learn.
Giving up to...
You better watch.
You better watch.
You better watch.
Out now. Out now. Oh oh oh oh.
Out now. Out now. Oh oh oh oh.
Ouch!
Track Name: Alone
I am not impressed by your puzzles.
I have already figured out.
Kissing like they do in the movies.
Gets your body turned inside out.

Want you, want you, want you to out me.
I'll give you a piece of my mind.
Living like we do, gets you through.

Chorus:
Wondering what you're doing now.
Heard you found yourself a new crown.
Wonder what she thinking
When the feelings sink in
Wondering what you're doing.
Wondering what you're doing.

No one came, no one wrote, no one even said hi.
No one laughed, no one sneered, no one cared to cry
We were there. Then we left. And we forgot the things
That we had told each other when we exchanged those—
I am here. I'm alive. I've forgiven you now.
But I will always remember how—
I will always remember...

[Chorus]

Wondering who you're doing now.
