Mt. Joy have sharef the hauntingly dystopic video for ‘My Vibe’, the latest single from their forthcoming sophomore LP, Rearrange Us – due June 5th.
Director Steve Girard takes us to a grotesque playhouse diner where rollerskating waitresses serve dead-eyed customers their final greasy meal before the outside world implodes.
The music itself shows off the band’s more playful side while blending their rootsy stomp with swirls of synthesizers. Spurred on by producer Tucker Martine (My Morning Jacket, The Decemberists, Modest Mouse), this new, more kaleidoscopic side to the band makes itself known throughout Rearrange Us.
The song is about letting go and living in the moment, and trying to let new people in your life if you think they can make you happy”, states frontman Matt Quinn.
Beginning as Quinn’s literal bedroom project, Mt. Joy swiftly rose to fame off the back of the unexpected streaming success of debut single ‘Astrovan’. The five-piece band have since gone on to earn over two million monthly Spotify listeners, number one hits on the AAA radio charts and tours with the likes of The Shins, Whitney and Neko Case.
