Five, six, seven, eight, everybody celebrate.
Eight... eight... eight... eight... eight...
With the release of their third album - 88888, Joywave is celebrating... and making waves. Self-describing their music as Neon Noir, they mix hints of Hot Chip and Depeche Mode on songs like "All I Want" with Kanye-esque beats on songs like "Facility" (we're thinking 2007, The Graduation style). On "Motherless Child", the band pushes a modern political agenda through the sound of a civil war era drum, yet they still manage to bring the new gold standard of rap lyrics from Philly native STS on the heavy hitting "Ray Lewis".
Check out their sophomore album 77777 too.
