Los Angeles-based Joyeur comes through with an intimate and raw debut album titled ‘How to Love Yourself and Not Destroy Everything’, a ten-track release filled with darkened/electronic-pop influence that produces plenty of deepened power that will leave an impact on all within its path.
Drawing comparisons to the likes of Banks & Tei Shi, ‘How to Love Yourself and Not Destroy Everything’ covers significant ground with a murkiness throughout the soundscapes on offer that drives the obscurity that is hidden within the lyrical messaging of the release. With brooding electronic instrumentation setting the gripping backbone in tact, Joyeur magnetises all within her path through those melodies swirling across the mix and as such heightening the intensity held in each track significantly.
“I feel like I’ve torn the veil off my pain, fear, and insecurities to reveal power that can be used for good. Empowering and accepting myself in this way feels like a gateway to letting love in and to stop undermining my own wants and needs. I can be my own worst enemy.” – Joyeur
