Their debut album ‘Mt. Joy’, released last year in the UK via Dualtone/Entertainment One, has received great critical acclaim in the U.S and Europe, reaching over 86 million Spotify plays. Mt. Joy’s debut, produced by Jon Gilbert (The Kills), is a startlingly open document, wracked with the anxieties and fears that come just as life seems to start working out. It’s a natural reaction from a wary band like Mt. Joy – the result of a sort of professional vertigo, as they’ve gone from virtual unknowns to hot young commodity in little over a year. But there’s a sense of hope underlying everything, girded by the fact that the Mt. Joy LP is an impressive, honest portrayal of a young band facing that moment where dreams become reality, and finding beauty in the exhilarating uncertainty of it all.
