Jowave – Coming Apart
Stephanie’s DJ Pick of the Week!
“It’s coming apart!” Okay, rub it in our face then, Joywave. If there were ever a song for the times, this seems like the one! It may be written about a crumbling relationship, but the metaphor for the world is too perfect to stop us from dancing around our kitchen in sweatpants (right after a video call).
This jam will have you moving from the start, which is no surprise from a band at the forefront of the synth pop movement. The dark pallet brings up memories of early Portugal the Man, but the hi-fi production feels closer to Foster The People. Whether he’s leading Joywave or his other project Big Data, this is just the artistry we’ve come to know and love from frontman Daniel Armbruster.
Tune into 100.1 FM or lightning100.com to hear “Coming Apart” by Joywave featured as my DJ Pick of the Week. We want to hear your thoughts, too! Tweet at us with #L100DJPick to tell us if we should keep spinning the record.
