New band Sick Joy are excited to announce their debut EP Amateurs, out March 23 via SaySomething Records.
In conjunction with the news, the band streamed their new track ‘Senses’ exclusively with Dork. In the band’s own words: “The song is basically a heavy Pixies rip off and we couldn’t be more proud.”
Forming only in 2016, the UK’s Sick Joy started life in Newcastle before moving to Brighton to pursue their future. Their mix of lo-fi post-grunge and dirty noise-pop has already seen Sick Joy drawing attention and marks the band as ones to watch.
Following a support slot with Honeyblood at Bush Hall, and their debut London headline show drawing a near sell-out crowd, Sick Joy have been picked to support Feeder at Brixton Academy in March.
Bearing comparisons from Nirvana, Pixies, Arctic Monkeys and Oasis, Sick Joy‘s first two singles ‘Stars’ (April 2017) and ‘Cat In A Bird Cage’ were released to acclaim and strong radio support, and led to their signing with SaySomething Records.
Sick Joy are: guitars and vocals Mykl Barton, bass Danny Piston, and drums Drew Michael.
