“How You Feel” – Joy Again

Chances are you don’t know the Philadelphia-based band Joy Again but that should change soon. The five piece lo-fi project recently signed to Lucky Number Music with artists like Alex G and Hinds to release their debut single, “Looking Out For You/How You Feel.” “How You Feel” is a beautiful story of unrequited love  and the journey towards acceptance as vocalist, Arthur Shea sings, “Do you want me at all? / Because if you don’t that’s alright.” The track ebbs and flows from its commanding intro, through its dreamlike verses and finally into a gorgeously melancholic exit. In the end, the song stems from a place of sadness, yet underneath, joy inexplicably bursts through the seams.
