Joyeria is a Canadian born, London based musician. His new single, "Colour Film," is this bizarre rootsy Americana blend of indie rock. Joyeria has an oddly quirky vocal delivery that's going to remind you of Stephen Malkmus and even has a little bit of that ramblin' country sound certain Pavement songs, but "Colour Film" is both more rootsy and more hard rockin' than you would expect. The song is going to sound instantly familiar, but the more time you spend with it the more and more unique it starts to sound to you.
Joyeria says of the new single:
"'Colour Film' is about the mindless daily routine of being alive, what David Foster Wallace called 'water'. I apparently have the ability to choose how I feel or think as I participate in being alive just as I can choose how I feel and think when I explain songs which is to say at times, very uneasy. But this song is also about worry beads, American G.I.’s running fighter pilot drills over Mediterranean islands, stray cats, ice creams and falling rotten oranges.
"Like I said, I’m in a colour film, in fact we might all be."
