When you meet Drowsy Joy, it does not take long to notice their comradery. During our photo shoot with the group, Newf joked “Sorry, we’re awkward, so just tell us what to do” and the communal laughter that followed suggested this wasn’t the first time they have acknowledged this. While they may describe themselves as awkward, when performing, they end up producing energy that only can come from musicians making music they love. The group’s aesthetic is crisp, natural and strengthens their image as a unit. It can be viewed as a representation of their classically influenced alternative sound. Whether it be making artistic decisions or dealing with a broken-down car an hour before a show, Drowsy Joy moves forward together.
