Straight-up pop from Joy In Motion

Joy In Motion are a brand new 4-piece straight out of the heart of Brisbane. A project borne out of Jake Solway's desire to shift into something a little different from his previous act, heavy band Road to Ransome. Jake was drumming for that band - but always had a desire to front a band as the vocalist.

Today they (Jake Solway - Vocals, Patrick Heaton - Bass, Carly Sinn - Drums and Dylan Cottee - Guitar) release their very first taste of Joy In Motion, ahead of their debut EP release, which drops on Friday May 26th. Pre-Orders are now live at their Big Cartel and Band Camp sites.

The straight-up pop rock/alt rock sound comes from Jake growing up listening to bands like Fall Out Boy, Blink 182 and Sum 41 and the results are obvious. Clean tones, beautiful vocals and sing a long vocals for days means that Joy In Motion will be hard to shake out of your head.
