Introducing Joyeur, an LA-based electro-pop duo who just dropped their debut EP, Lifeeater
If good-time electro-pop bangers are your jam, then Joyeur is for you.
Joyeur are an LA-based duo consisting of Russian-Israeli producer and classical pianist Anna Feller and Angeleno singer-songwriter Joelle Corey, who together create some incredibly fun electronic-pop sounds. Last Friday they unleashed their debut EP Lifeeater unto the world, and it's an ecclectic and super-fun collection of tracks that put good times paramount.
We sent 'em a few questions to find out a little more:
Tell us about yourselves?
J: Hi, I’m Joelle and I love singing in bathrooms.
A: Hi, I’m Anna and I like long walks on the beach, bubble baths and synths.
What kinda tunes we talkin’?
Our songs tend to be lyrically direct and upbeat. We love mixing electronic and raw elements that lend themselves to fun, funky feelings. Of course, it can be tough to define your own music but it’s always educational to hear how others do! So, we’ll leave that to our listeners.
J: This ebbs and flows in each direction. Some songs start with Anna. Some start with me, but they always develop and continue together. We really feed off each other’s ideas, but also have really different tastes in music. So, when we hit a sweet spot where our excitement overlaps that’s when a song comes out.
A: Jo can create a demo track or even a voice memo and I’ll take it further and expand on the production side. The same goes for the writing. I might have a lyrical concept and Jo will run with that. We like to switch things up a lot. The only rule between us is that we both have to be excited.
Can you tell us about your debut EP, Lifeeater?
Lifeeater is an emotional amalgamation of the past few years concentrated into five songs. It deals with rejection, finding confidence, and just learning not to care. To us, Lifeeater feels like a comeback to life. From the first few seconds of our lead single Pusher through the end of the EP, we just wanted to leave the bullshit behind and just really embrace the power that comes with being unapologetic about who you are. We want our music to be an escape for our listeners as much as it was for us to create it.
Any shows coming up?
We have shows coming up this fall to be announced soon!
What’s the rest of the year have in store?
We’re currently working on a full-length album.
Where can we hear more of your music?
