Philadelphia-based indie folk outfit Mt. Joy will release their debut self-titled album in March on Dualtone Records
Ahead of its release, Mt. Joy have shared ‘Dirty Love’, the band’s sixth single, which enhances their rep for their richly textured, minimalist and expansive brand of Americana – and anticipation for said record. ‘Dirty Love’ strikes a brooding, emotional tone as a solitary ukulele leads us in, met by Quinn’s deeply affecting vocals, all-consuming bass and whimsical mash of folk-pop instruments. Marked by protruding doubt through, the clamour of sound grows manic toward the end, climaxing as a piercing guitar spikes, conjuring further depth to Quinn’s deprecating thoughts. A powerful, emotionally charged and deeply affecting song; shrouded by a richly textured indie folk blanket, the vulnerability of ‘Dirty Love’ drawing the listener under its spell.
Listen to ‘Dirty Love’ below & keep your eye out for Mt. Joy’s self-titled debut, out on March 2.
