As much as we like to listen to music that reflects the world around us (even in October when the world is grey and a bit damp), sometimes you need an anecdote to all that. And that's exactly what faceless pop entity Hips has provided with their new single "Laugh". Carried along by a technicolour bounce with bright synths and falsetto vocals, "Laugh" is as unashamedly cheery as it's possible to get. As the nights draw in closer, bear in mind tunes like "Laugh" next time you're wondering what the point of it all is.
