Reminiscent of Voxtrot’s happy-go-lucky-mid-2000s-anthem ‘The Start of Something’, Joy Again oozes fuzz-friendly esthetics that are beautifully crafted into a jangle-pop masterpiece. Aside from their imminent debut release Looking Out For You (expected to drop on January 15th via Lucky Number records) Joy Again has very recently released a single from the EP, which bears the same name. In a press release, manager and XL/Godmode Records artist Shamir Bailey had the following to say about Joy Again: “[They are] extremely aware of the world around them, dangerously smart and super mature without leaving behind that playfulness that a lot of people lose once they start to enter adult life.” This is definitely a group to keep an eye on.
