Joywave is an electronic/indie outfit from Rochester NY. The group released their EP How Do You Feel? back in March and have been riding high on its success with performances on Late Night with Seth Meyers, at Osheaga, Lollapalooza, and a national tour including a stop with Lykke Li. Their sound and style are catchy in a big way and well worth your time. I’m looking forward to seeing where Joywave goes as they undoubtedly head towards a sophomore album.
