Gorgeous psychedelia from the banks of the Mersey...

Pure Joy might seem familiar.

After all, each member has been involved in various projects, various bands that made their mark but then stuttered to a halt.

Emboldened by these experiences, Pure Joy is imbued with a real sense of intensity. Gorgeous psychedelia from the banks of the Mersey, the Wirral collective seem to want to push harder, to go faster, to hit harder than ever before.

'Katie's Gone Home' recalls The War On Drugs, that driving, kinetic energy married to a rushing, lysergic sonic palette.

An anthemic introduction, you can check it out below.

Pure Joy will release their debut album on April 1st.
