With just one listen to Joy Room’s ’Late at Night,’ you’ll be just as easily convinced as us that these boys are on their way to some stellar success. This is the London based quartet’s debut single, and it is quite the introduction. With immediate hints of The Hives oozing out, Joy Room’s modernized take on the high school rock stage of our lives gives us a reason, probably the only one, to go back.
The constant intensity, collective high energy, and undeniably explosivity has this track busting at the seams. The brutally truthful lyricism of drinking away the memory of a love lost is perfectly pined in a non-brooding, purely rock’n’roll way. The words “I don’t mind running, I don’t mind hiding, I don’t mind,” is case and point.
Cereal Pairing: Hidden Treasures, because as of now, Joy Room is our favorite hidden treasure.
