Oh Joy announce debut EP and share new single
Oh Joy are set to release a new EP entitled Good Grief on June 8th. The band, who jokingly describe themselves as “mope rock” follow up two critically acclaimed singles that came out last year. The miserabilist tag is something the band embrace but that melancholy is equally drenched in humour and their intention is to subvert the depressing rock band stereotype. The video for lead single Cab Sad perfectly sums up that over-the-top melodrama juxtaposed with knowing wit.
Premiering today on Brooklyn Vegan, “The 710” is the second single from The Essex Green’s Hardly Electronic (out June 29) and the first from the anticipated album to feature lead vocals from band member Sasha Bell, who says the song “describes innocently stumbling into an internecine web of secrecy and betrayal, a web begun generations ago…” The band’s video collaborator Michael Barrett created a visual for the song, cut up from nostalgic stock footage (and some of the band for good measure).
