JoyCut >

Two drummers sitting face to face and a guy with machines, both a conductor and author in between them. Electronic, post-rock and dark-wave, often experimental but accessible. Italy’s JoyCut, based in Bologna, emerged in 2004.

The project named for the conjunction between the song ‘Joey’ from Nick Drake’s Time of No Reply and Pink Floyd’s The Final Cut. After some sonic exploration on early recordings, JoyCut’s most distinct sounds of post‐rock and dark‐wave bore true fruit on the 2009 release “Ghost Trees Where to Disappear”.

Their music includes a weaving of powerful sonic moments using electronic melodies and percussion with found objects from the urban landscape. Often experimental but always accessible.


Having opened and toured with such bands as Arcade Fire, Editors, Art Brut, Modest Mouse and Sebadoh, the trio won over North American fans on their first proper US tour in spring of 2014. The tour not only exposed them to thousands of new fans but also to radio (Nic Harcourt of KCSN has become a supporter), commercial scoring (VISA World Cup commercial score secured through their SXSW International Day Stage Performance) and mainstream press (MTV Iggy Artist of the Week in April 2014 and Under The Radar feature in July 2014 issue) in America and Canada. A North American return in the fall of 2014 will take them to new cities well as have them return to others where they had success this past spring. 

“Sounds like: A future where robots and humans share organic meals and feelings of hope.” – MTV Iggy

“This is an electronic music with a dark edge, with a psych edge and massive beat with the huge added bonus a real live, sweating, sweltering drums” - Louder than War

“…unbelievably sprightly, uplifting, and beautiful.” - The Stranger
