Over the past few months a handful of my friends have been talking about Joywave. Most of them are into stuff a bit poppier than I am, but I wanted to check them out before they start getting super popular. When they released their recent single, “It’s A Trip!,” I wasn’t too excited by it. The latest song, “Doubt,” is much more in tune with my tastes.
The song is a bit darker, more synth-pop with a New Wave 80’s influence.Produced by vocalist Dan Armbruster and Sean Donnelly, you can feel a lot of the bands that they’ve been opening for over the last couple years starting to seep into their sound. They’re about to head out for some dates with Cold War Kids and Young The Giant later this summer, and the fans of those bands should be prepared to show up early to hear a group they’re sure to love.
Check out the band’s website for details on the new album Content, as well as tour dates (also to hear the new song if you can’t check it out via Spotify below).
