      Joy Again

      with Field Trip, King Nun
      Anything youve heard about Joy Again may or may not be true.Arthur Shea and Sachi DiSerafino, the two twenty-two-year-old songwriters behind the projectthey call Joy Again, met way back in kindergarten. They lived five minutes away from each otherin Glen Mills, Pennsylvania and played on the same baseball team in third grade. Then theywerent friends for a long time until they reconnected freshman year of high school andbonded over a shared love (and hate) of music. Arthur and Sachi started playing music togetherand Sachi transferred to the boarding school Arthur was at, Westtown, in eastern Pennsylvania.The pair shared a dorm room for the next two years where they used to stay up til the weehours watching Breaking Bad and sleep talking to each other in that room. Joy Agains earlysingles, the hazy, anxious crush songs How You Feel and Looking Out For You, came fromthat time.A lot has happened since then.After high school, Arthur and Sachi moved with some friends to a house in West Philadelphia tomake music all the time. Over the years, Joy Again sprinkled a smattering of infectious EPs andsingles, and in spring 2018 released 30 tracks theyd recorded from 2014-2015, their senioryear, titled Forever. Joy Again, which Sachi and Arthur refer to as more of a collective than aband, toured with Rostam at the start of 2018, and with JPEGMAFIA that summer. Now superfresh off an entirely sold-out circuit with Wallows, these boys are no doubt bringing their freshtake on pop music to the masses.Arthur and Sachi are the principal components of Joy Again, but their bandmates, BlaiseO'Brien (Bass), Will Butera (Drums), and Zachary Tyndall (Keys) play crucial roles in songconstruction as wellas do their collaborators including producers Caleb Laven (Frank Ocean)and Matty Tavares (BADBADNOTGOOD). Their new record, a seven-song EP titled Piano thatwill be out August 7, has been a long time coming, written a few years ago and recorded overmany different sessions.Arthur says his songs sound slushy, like a swamp or something, and that Sachis sound ismore like the theme for Dr. Wilys Castle in the classic Nintendo game Mega Man.They agree that Joy Again was once more of a straightforward rock band. But now Its like, I dont even know what the fuck it is, Sachi says. And thats the beauty of Joy Again.Who even knows?
