The Joyful Sadness – Perfect Alibi

The Joyful Sadness is a New Wave / Post Punk / Synth based project hailing from Preston, Lancashire. 

This track is reminiscent of early The Killers, Joy Division, Gary Numan, The Cure. I love the vocal layering technique used here, panned in such a way that sounds like these endless thoughts and rants of “being stuck in a toxic relationship, being gaslighted”.

You can hear the passion and distress in this song, in equal measures at the same time. I would definitely keep an eye on this project!
