There’s no doubt about it – this is one kick-ass track from Joywave’s debut album,which came out earlier this month, and it’s mostly accredited to that bass line and big electronic beats! In addition, ‘Somebody New’ also has one of the biggest and most original choruses I’ve come across this year so far. (Good luck getting it out of your head today).
It reminds me so much of the Alt-Rock scene in the late 90’s/early 2000’s, where we saw electronic elements starting to seep into the sound of a typical Alternative rock band. This would later spawn a thousand Indie Rock artists. A good example of such a band would be Tinfed.
