Joyshop are featured on the soundtrack of Harry Michell's new film, Chubby Funny. The majority of the film's underscoring comes courtesy of Schubert with additional music from Xylaroo, Hannah Heartshape and ourselves. The film is now available on Amazon and you can check it out here.
One of Joyshop's tracks is featured prominently in the soundtrack for Lauren Bensted's film, Confection. The short film is a bittersweet comedy about a not-quite-grown-up who finds himself accidentally catapulted into the thick of a very grown-up situation, which we all find thoroughly relatable. Confection was screened as part of the Short Film Corner at the 70th Festival de Cannes and you can see the trailer here.
If you’re looking for the antidote to the daily tedium of commercial industry pop, I think I’ve found it in Joyshop. Their latest album ‘Fables’, out on the 7th January, is a reminder of how music should be.
Self-proclaimed as “folk & roll for the soul”, this is one of the most pleasant albums we have heard in a while. Hailing from Bristol, Joyshop’s third album is laden with memorable hooks and clever harmonies, all of which is made more impressive by the fact it was written and recorded in just five days.
There's something liberating about hours of completely new music, especially if you're used to listening to a station that thrives on the familiar. Yesterday's breakfast show featured an array of jaunty, perky tunes, including some seasonal weather themes. Frost, by Joyshop had a very topical line about being on someone's mind "like frost on your nose when it's cold".
