Shock of the New: JoyLand
Oobah Arthur Paul Butler gives us the lowdown on his favourite new find
YOU MAY NOT HAVE HEARD OF:
The stylistically aphotic London-based Northern Irish trio, JoyLand.
IN A NUTSHELL THEY’RE A BIT LIKE:
Deerhunter, but more rounded and ‘poppy’.
FROM WHAT WE CAN TELL:
Single by single, they’re maturing and exploring – the more progressive they go, the better: people have adored them thus far.
IT’S ONLY THE FIRST DATE, BUT WE’RE THINKING:
Their first single ‘Whitebate’ was heavily blogged (loved by John Kennedy), and their live shows are climbing rungs rapidly – it only looks a matter of time before they land some really terrific coverage.
