Brooklyn/Boston duo Joyer, have shared “Fall Apart”, a track are off their forthcoming album, Night Songs, due out on April 26th via Hit the North Records/Julia’s War. Joyer includes multi-instrumentalist brothers Nick and Shane Sullivan. Joyer have also announced a run of upcoming US tour dates that include shows in New York and LA, as well as appearances at SXSW.

Shane Sullivan on “Fall Apart”:

“In the past we’ve made a lot of slow music so we thought it would be fun to make a more frantic sounding song for a change. We wanted to center the song around a hypnotic motorik beat and we kind of built from there. ‘Fall Apart’ is about recklessness and self sabotage and how people easily let their lives spin out of control.”

Night Songs was recorded by Bradford Krieger (Horse Jumper of Love, Squirrel Flower) at Big Nice Studios. The songwriting duties are split evenly between Nick and Shane, but there’s a palpable cohesion in their music, a unified vision that’s always guided the project and continues even with the siblings living in different cities. “We grew up in this small suburban town and there weren’t too many people interested in music so it was convenient to just play with each other and we’ve always had pretty much the same music tastes,” Shane explains. “I just feel like when I’m in a band with Shane I don’t have to compromise,” Nick adds. “Being brothers allows us to be really honest and have a lot of productive criticism because we’re so comfortable with one another, we don’t have to hold back and it helps us achieve what we’re going for.”
