Joywave, the unconventionally awesome band hailing from Rochester, NY, is quickly making a name for themselves with a catalog that dexterously shifts between genre putting on display the band’s pointed talent for blending influences. They received some serious and deserved praise for the release of their 88888 Mixtape in 2013 and this past March they followed up with their debut EP How Do You Feel? via Cultco Music / Hollywood Records which further solidifies our previous sentiments and is nothing short of impressive.
With little prior visual reference for what the group are all about they recently dropped the video for their hit “Tongues ” featuring hometown comrades KOPPS which puts their eccentric nature in perspective with an obscure display of man-hunting/bush-dancing nakedness that is sure to have your eyes attached. Check out the video below and be sure to catch Joywave on their upcoming tour (dates listed below).
