Good lord – the Bristolian 5 piece have honed and sharpened up for their supposedly difficult second to create a radical ode to self-love, an assault on toxic masculinity and an antidote to the pervasive political climate through an unholy alchemic take on punk - we can’t get enough of it.

It’s profoundly refreshing to hear a band forthrightly put their heart and their opinions on their sleeve without apologising or diluting their message – part of what we loved about ‘brutalism’ was joe talbot’s ascerbic wit and wisdom and we’re happy to say that he’s only gotten better. His lyrics, combined with the rest of the band’s broader scope and sound makes ‘Joy…’ an instant classic & one that’s going to be celebrated for years to come. “Joy… delivers on the momentum that they have been building, and seizes a piece of the zeitgeist in the process.” – 9/10, album of the week, the line of best fit
