Hailing from the rich cultural breeding ground of Philadelphia, Joy Again is a quintet right at that vital point in their career between just starting out and truly figuring out their sound – in this case, that means their songs shift from fast and punky to experimental and atmospheric folk at times – but what’s clear already is that they’ve got some big ideas, musical chops, and a lot of energy to put to good use.
