Tongues [Official Video]
Out of Rochester [NY], Joywave are responsible for some highly infectious electronic sounds and have been garnering a strong fan base in the US over the past twelve months. Armed with their effortlessly catchy indie hooks, gritty electronic synth and brooding vocals, Joywave’s sound has immense depth and intelligence as seen from their debut EP and acclaimed live sets.
Joywave’s contagious single, ‘Tongues‘ which featured vocals from KOPPS, rapidly climbed the Hype Machine charts earlier in the year to stay strong at #1 for over a week. After receiving remixes from the likes of RAC, Harry Fraud, Starsmith and The Hood Internet, ‘Tongues’ continues to receive new leases of life, taking the internet by storm each time. Most recently, Nate Fox & Rami Beatz teamed up for a trap fuelled, glitch-hop remix of the track which premiered with Complex UK last week. Joywave recently featured on Big Data‘s single “Dangerous” which peaked a#1 in the Billboard Alternative Songs chart in August, leading to a performance on the coveted Late Night with Seth Meyers show – an incredible feat for such a new and exciting band.
In addition to their slot at New Shapes in Notting Hill, Joywave will be supporting Stockholm based electro-pop trio, Kate Boy, on part of their forthcoming UK tour for the Manchester, Brighton, Bristol and London shows. Joywave will also be heading to Berlin for a headline show as well as a set at Howl Festival in Paris. Head to Joywave’s Facebook for further info and ticket links.
