Joy Atlas Short Info

Described by BB6 Music’s Tom Robinson as ‘a breath of fresh air’, four piece Joy Atlas offer radiant, angular, neon lit pop music. Their soaring, synth-laden sound, paired with the resonant impact of Beccy Owen’s voice, glides above a chiming, staggering backdrop of bleak-beats, deep bass, horn-riffs and synthy dreaminess.

Their songs offer an emotionally complex, sleek-and-unique sound that rivals the likes of Robyn, Goldfrapp, Imogen Heap and Bjork on a particularly chorus-led day.

The members of Joy Atlas have been championed by NME, BBC6 Introducing Radio 3, Radio 4 and The Culture Show. They’ve shared stages with the likes of John Grant, Maximo Park, Elvis Costello, Portico and The Unthanks, and their songs to date are a prime example of a band distilling their array of influences into a singular, exciting new sound.

“a sound that mixes American R&B, the kookiness of Bjork, glitchy electronica and prime indie-pop to produce a song that reminds you that pop music doesn’t have to be inferior to rock.”
