Last year saw Joy Crookes establish a luxurious signature sound via two low-key releases, trip-hop influenced orchestral brooder ‘Sinatra’ and artful, assured ‘New Manhattan’.
Joy Crookes releases the video for her current single “Bad Feeling” featuring Kojey Radical. “Bad Feeling” is the lead single off her debut EP, due to be out this summer.
It’s an absolute brilliant track, it comes as a gorgeously shot, tongue-in-cheek, chemistry-filled meeting of minds! Joy’s bold visual aesthetic, powerful lyrics and sophisticated modern pop sound are proof of this striking new talent’s deep and longstanding obsession with music. It’s an obsession rooted in an incredibly eclectic musical collection.
Just as it’s true that there’s beauty in even the harshest urban landscapes so Joy’s music finds the splendor, and in ‘Bad Feelings’ case, the humour, in life’s hardest moments.
