Listen To The Fray’s ‘Happiness’ from Pretty Little Liars — Soaring, Heart-Wrenching Vocals

pretty little liars season 7

Remember that pretty song from Pretty Little Liars, Season 7, Episode 1 — “Tick Tock, Bitches”? The one with the man with the soaring vocals that played on the jukebox in the bar, and that made Aria rush to Ezra to tell him she needs to be with him?

If you haven’t figured out by now, it’s from pop rock band The Fray and is called “Happiness“, and it really is heart-breaking. Especially with those agonized vocals and lyrics like this.

Happiness feels a lot like sorrow
Let it be, you can’t make it come or go
But you are gone- not for good but for now
Gone for now feels a lot like gone for good

“Happiness” is from The Fray’s 2009 self-titled album, which hit the number 1 spot on the Billboard album charts the week it was released. It was certified gold soon after.

As for the band, The Fray got their start in 2002 in Denver, Colorado. Since then, they have released four albums, with their last album Helios hitting the shelves in 2014. The band is known for the way most of their songs are so piano-driven, which also tends to make them so beautiful.

The band themselves says some of their influences are U2, Counting Crows and Better Than Ezra which, if you just listen to a handful of their songs, is easy to hear.

Listen to The Fray’s “Happiness” from Pretty Little Liars in the video below to see what I mean. Gorgeous, isn’t it?

You can also grab their self-titled album on most major digital music sites.
