Shamir-managed Lucky Number signees Joy Again detail debut AA-side single

11 November 2015, 17:16 | Written by Laurence Day

Quintet Joy Again, managed by Shamir and signed to Lucky Number, have shared debut single "Looking Out For You".

Beginning as a lo-fi duo of 18-year-olds Sachi DiSerafino and Arthur Shea, Joy Again swiftly became a full band project Sean Henry (23), Blaise O’Brien (16), and Logan Burke (17). Hailing from the corners of Pennsylvania (plus The Big Apple), the five-piece make exciting music - and Las Vegas native Shamir knows it.

Now managing the outfit, Shamir says that they are: “extremely aware of the world around them, dangerously smart and super mature without leaving behind that playfulness that a lot of people lose once they start to enter adult life.”

The first taste of Joy Again is the peppy "Looking Out For You", which sounds like a shimmering cross between The Strokes and Mac DeMarco, with banjos, fluttering chords, and lots of bouncy hooks.

The "Looking Out For You"/"How You Feel" AA-side is being released on limited edition 7" on 15 January 2016 by Lucky Number.
