Joy AtlasWith the infectious quality of Goldfrapp and the inventive pop approach of Field Music, UK quartet Joy Atlas are set to make some noise. Last week, the Newcastle band released their debut single, “Dismount”. It’s a melodic, smile-inducing tune, where frontwoman Beccy Owen’s lovely voice really shines through. The interplay between the synths, keys, and bass add a whimsical quality to the song, taking the song towards experimental leanings as oppose to standard pop arrangements. If Joy Atlas can create this kind of music using unconventional ways, imagine what they could do using classical approaches. We can’t wait to hear what’s next.
