JOYYA released their latest slice of blissed-out pop on 25th May 2018. Forthcoming single Horizon looks set to further the band’s growing reputation, having already secured radio play from BBC 6Music and coverage across the BBC Introducing network.
JOYYA are an English electronic pop duo consisting of Ben Dancer and David Pullen. Now based in London, they originally hail from the small village of Wylam in Northumberland. Inspired by their move to the city, Dancer and Pullen started making music together almost three years ago, and have since been meticulously crafting and developing their sound behind closed doors.
JOYYA released their debut song Seven on 30th June 2017, selected twice as Track Of The Day on BBC Introducing (BBC Newcastle) and covered online by the likes of Crack In The Road, DIY Magazine and leading business title Record Of The Day. Follow-up song Red Tune features John Waugh (The 1975) on saxophone and was released on 28th July 2017. The song has received BBC Introducing coverage and was selected as a ‘Fresh Fave’ by the Fresh On The Net (Tom Robinson, BBC 6Music) panel.
