Today, six-piece indie-rock outfit Joy Again return with their new single & video, “What Lovers Do,” on Arista Records.
“What Lovers Do” marks Joy Again’s first release with Arista Records. The dreamy, lo-fi track explores “a playful cat and mouse game, the push and pull of a complicated relationship, and a rumination on the perpetuity of love.”
For Joy Again, inspiration indiscriminately bounces around like a superball. It ping-pongs between the Philadelphia band before it settles and crystallizes in one capriciously catchy bop after another. The six members of Joy Again—Sachi DiSerafino [vocals, guitar], Arthur Shea [vocals, guitar], Blaise O’Brien [keys], Zachary Tyndall [keys], Will Butera [drums], and Kieran Ferris [bass]—draw hooks and melodies from the most unexpected corners as they create without limitations or boundaries. Since debuting in 2014, the band has generated more than 100 million streams independently, inciting hundreds of thousands of TikTok videos, and earning acclaim from The FADER, OnesToWatch, Atwood Magazine, EARMILK, Alt Citizen, NME,and more.
“What Lovers Do” arrives on the heels of the viral success of “Looking Out For You,” the band’s 2015 single that has been gaining unprecedented TikTok traction over the past year. “Looking Out For You” is currently charting at #61 on Spotify’s US Top 200 and has amassed 130M+ streams to date, with Arista Records signing the band last May.
