Manchester-based singer, songwriter and instrumentalist Joy Becker has recently released her latest striking single “Victory”.
Right from the first verse, Joy Becker sets herself apart with the boldness and bluntness in her lyrics “have you ever been so tired”, “this life is full of pain”, “but I choose to love anyway”. By navigating the usual airy metaphor-cloaked method of expression, the candid feel of Victory leaves you arrested with little inclination to tear yourself away from the resonance.
Alongside Joy Becker’s stunning beyond all definition vocals, you’ll hear frantic breaths choked out in the background amplifying the light pensive sting of the electric guitar and cello. It’s a potent mix of melancholic alchemy, but one which is no doubt essential for the airwaves right now.
You can discover the mesmerism which lingers between the notes of Joy Becker’s latest single for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.
