Sick Joy have shared a new video for their track 'Vibe Sucker'.
“It’s just a universally personal chant of frustration at a whole bunch of stuff,” explains singer and guitarist Mykl. “Everyone knows that shit.”
It's the second song from the group's upcoming EP 'Them Days' (due 13th September via SO Recordings), following the release of ‘Shoot Your Lover’.
“It’s all in its name,” Mykl says of the EP. “All of the songs were written around the same time, a period of a few months, which was kind of heavy but defining. They’re all hashed together parts of things that were going on around and how they affected myself, the other guys, the band, everything really.
“All of the artwork across the releases are from the walks I took at night to just take in some real life and breathe. A lot of the lyrics and stuff were written on those walks so it’s like a tour of its infancy. We had a space we played in and the songs came together properly up there too so each step of it coming together was really segregated from everything else.
“We went back up north to record and got a house too. We all lived together with our producer too and just lived it. We tried not to care about being a 3-piece band and just wanted to make a good record that we really dug. Something that was different from what we normally are but that we still enjoyed. I’m really proud of it and I can look back on everything that went into making it both good and bad, and be happy. That’s the whole point really.”
