I know this sounds cheesy, but a wave of joy really does wash over me when new Joywave surfaces. The Rochester five piece are back with a groovy cut named It’s A Trip and news of a sophomore album named Content, to be released on July 28th. It’s A Trip is a sleek chugging alt anthem that reminds me of their early collaboration with Big Data with some of the garage blues of The Black Keys and a flux of Portugal. the Man’s kaleidoscopic funk. Its cocksure prance and sly slickness are more than contagious. Alongside title track Content which was revealed a week ago, Joywave’s new album is already sounding mighty fine. Joywave will be embarking on tour with Cold War Kids and Young The Giant this August. Re-visit delicious dark electro thrasher Content below, which I seriously can’t get enough of.

Rochester band Joywave is back with their first new song in over a year, and this time around, we’re in for a dark heady ride. Content is an ominous thudding, inky intoxicating beast of a tune. About a minute into the song’s eerie introspection, Joywave breaks into thrashing ferocity. They’ve melded indietronica with industrial tinged electro rock in heart pumping fashion. Content is like Nine Inch Nails paired with The Shoes or Big Data, with even a sprinkling of Radiohead in its subdued and meditative moments and a sliver of Crystal Castles in its acerbic synths intens. Content is a trip of a tune and just the right kind of danse macabre I adore.
