Full of wit, hilarity and tragedy “Cab Sad” follows the Irish trio’s stunning debut “So Swell”.
Oh Joy are a band of boundless potential. Their music, although in relative infancy, possesses the nuances of an act with far more experience, managing to bottle both passionate intensity and morbid comedy into their own brand of mope rock. “Cab Sad” is an example of that idea, a homage to the slow decline of earthly love, a feeling that can go from indescribable euphoria to perpetual gloom in a day or a decade.
In the words of lead singer Ollie Moyes: “Cab Sad was written at a time when it felt as though I was being swallowed up by a hole, it is a love song about hating love”.
