“Star” By Joyer

Joyer, have announced their new album, Night Songs, due out April 26 via Hit the North Records/Julia’s War. The duo includes multi-instrumentalist brothers Nick and Shane Sullivan. To celebrate the announcement, Joyer have teamed with FLOOD Magazine to premiere the music video for their new single “Star.” The shimmering track follows “Drive All Night” (which drew attention from the likes of Stereogum, Paste Magazine, and more) and highlights Joyer’s ability to provide atmosphere and hooks in equal measure.

Recorded by Bradford Krieger (Horse Jumper of Love, Squirrel Flower) at Big Nice Studios, Night Songs perfectly captures Joyer’s blend of otherworldly mood and crunchy guitars, as well as a notably more hook-driven direction in the brothers’ songwriting.

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.”
