Known for laying it all on the table with their heartfelt, honest lyrics, Mixtapes has done it again.  Their new song “Happy and Poor” is a catchy, driving song that features the band’s co-vocalists Ryan Rockwell and Maura Weaver trading off and harmonizing about reflecting on their pasts, something that most anyone could relate to.

 

“”Happy and Poor” is a song about making decisions in your life and remembering past ones,” Rockwell tells MTV’s Buzzworthy Blog.  “It’s a song about looking back at the decisions you’ve made and seeing that right or wrong they have made you who you are. I am always working on myself to be better but i am proud of what I accomplished and how I got to be here. I might not have any money but I’ve gotten to do things over the past few years that my teenage self would think is the coolest things on the planet. We focus too much on bad days and nights, negative people and things. I liked being a kid, i lied all the memories, smells and music attached with that time period. I also like that it’s made me who i am. I’m poor, and I’m happy.”

 

“Happy and Poor” is the latest release from Ordinary Silence, which also includes the summer anthems “Elevator Days,” “Bad Parts” and “Everything’s Eventual.”

 

Mixtapes will kick-off their “Ordinary Silence Tour” on June 27th with You Blew It! and Light Years in support, which will lead into dates on the second half of the Vans Warped Tour.  Pre-order your copy of Ordinary Silence now and catch the band on tour in a city near you!
