New Discovery 1: Joy Atlas


Newcastle 4 piece Joy Atlas may peddle tried and trusted synth pop, but there’s a deceptively exploratory depth beyond the shiny attraction of first introductions. Yes there’s some original rhythms; yes , there’s some interestingly sinewy bass grooves, but what really stands out is Beccy Owen’s multi tracked vocals. She delivers harmonies that soar, masterfully taking the listener on journeys that lead to inevitable further inspection. Like a mix between something vaguely Scandinavian (Susanne Sundfor) and Goldfrapp the Tynesiders early songs bode well for a breakthrough in 2017. An album and a live show in my hometown (Tucson AZ) would suit this listener perfectly!
