JOY. - Stone

JOY. - Stone

Where there was raw talent, JOY. has now brought her airy vocals and sharp production to the fore with her new single.

Whereas Captured was raw talent channelled into a song (watch a beautiful live recording of it HERE), JOY's Stone appears as a highly refined, late night slow-jam that you can keep playing over and over to appreciate. With all it's undulations and bumps it is not unlike that which is named after - a stone. Stone starts out with an intro that slides soeffortlessly due to Olivia McCarthy's voice floating airly over the soft piano keys. Then to mix things up a saxphone rolls on in, which I've always found to be a questionable instrument but it works damn well here. Indeed as it all breaks down, the reverb-heavy vocals of McCarthy are padded out oh so well against the thumping bass line. But the final minute really brings it together with the increasingly ethearal vocals mixing in with a far more bold saxophone that gives Stone the energy in an otherwise similar tempo song. 

To celebrate the release of the first single from her debut EP, Stone, JOY. is going on a little tour:
