BETTER JOY UNVEIL EMOTIONALLY CHARGE SINGLE "TALKING AROUND"


Better Joy
Better Joy continues to push boundaries and captivate audiences with their latest offering, "Talking Around," a poignant exploration of betrayal and harsh realities.

Following in the footsteps of their previous singles "Hard To Love" and "Dead Plants," "Talking Around" shows the band's ability to blend the classic and contemporary in their signature style of alternative pop.


Delving into the depths of human relationships, "Talking Around" documents the fallout from betrayal and the painful realization of truth versus lies. With silky yet gritty vocals, the song builds to a chaotic chorus of guitars, underscored by a sharp melody and haunting vocal refrains. Produced by industry veterans Steve Osborne and Mike Peden, and mixed by Caesar, "Talking Around" is a testament to Better Joy's enthralling fusion of contrast and their knack for balancing dark lyrical content with exhilarating melodies. Lead vocalist Bria Keely sheds light on the inspiration behind the song, stating;


"'Talking Around' tells the story of a fallout and calling out someone who twists the truth to suit their own perceptions and reputation. Trust is a powerful bond, and when broken, it's destructive. You end up hearing their muddled-up version of events, questioning the entire relationship you had, and your own judgment of other people."



Fronted by Bria Keely and backed by her band, Better Joy fearlessly experiments with opposites, blending deep lyrics with straightforward melodies and vulnerability with strength offering a fresh perspective on love and self-exploration through their music.


In addition to the release of "Talking Around," Better Joy has announced a series of tour dates and festival performances, including support shows with Swim Deep and The K's and appearances at Wanderlust, Block Party, and Left of the Dial festivals. From London to Paris to Rotterdam, Better Joy's electrifying performances promise to leave a lasting impact on audiences worldwide.
