Joe James Boyle – “Daze” premiere
JJB’s music sounds like an outsider who’s decided to finally let all hell break loose, or enjoy things for a while before he does so. Backed up by Istanbul born jazz drummer Deniz Terlan, his vocal style pays a little homage to fellow Londoners Jagger and Bowie, while his sound is clearly quite unabashedly that of a 90s kid, heavily awash with guitars that scream, or moan The Jesus & Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine and Nirvana, all of which combine into a unique performance. His last real show was at the infamous 8mm Bar back in January and was somewhat of a sold out circus of noise and strange dark poetry; more of the same is hoped for this time round…
“Daze” is the first of a series of singles from JJB. Co-produced by Gordon Raphael, JJB’s E.P was recorded, mixed, mastered and lived through ‘absurd chaos that nearly ruined everything’, yet somehow music is set to be released, and this intensity is the distinctive feature of his live show. Live Video Release Party at Monarch, Berlin July 19.
