Joyce Manor - ‘Cody’ Cover

A stunning effort from the emo-punks.

“This song is a mess, but so am I” sings Joyce Manor’s Barry Johnson on the closing line of ‘Cody’. That may have been true of the Californians’ chaotic emo-punk debut, but it’s actually a far cry from this latest album’s ambitious leanings.

Expanding on 2014’s more mature ‘Never Hungover Again’ this fourth full-length is packed with heart-on-sleeve anecdotes, ranging from playfully upbeat (‘Fake I.D.’) and Weezer-esque (‘Last You Heard Of Me’) to dark and painfully honest (‘Do You Really Want To Get Better’).

A brief but superb collection, this cements them as one of the most compelling acts in their genre.
