Joywave – Content [Hollywood]

Dance-floor synth-pop group with their second album, full of occasionally awkward vocal modulations and contrasting tones. Content connects on a few tracks but lacks the confidence and ambition that made their previous album, How Do You Feel Now?, such a solid debut. The closing track, Let’s Talk About Feelings (#11), takes a different approach, finding a relaxed, jazzy feel accompanied by a restaurant ambiance that oddly provides a resolute closure to the overly radio-friendly album.
