Joyer Share Cranky Boy Video
Perhaps you’ve been listening to a lot of Hovvdy the last few years. Maybe you even like the old Jade Tree catalog. Lucky for you, there’s this new tune from Joyer, which to me reminds me a lot of a mix between the two. It’s got that sort of Owls vocal to it, which is where I pulled the JT reference, but it very much feels like that slowcore emo, the sort where emotion is pulled from stretching notes of the guitar around slow-fashioned drum work. That pacing allows for the band’s cinematic nature to come to light, which is perhaps due to the fact that the Sullivan brothers both studied film in school; it’s one of the key influences on their album, Perfect Gray, which is out September 24th via Julia’s War.
