Better Joy share new single ‘Situations’

Better Joy continue to showcase their unique fusion of classic and contemporary alternative pop with their fourth single ‘Situations’ out now via new independent label Fader Amp. The track follows previous releases ‘Talking Around’, ‘Dead Plants’ and ‘Hard To Love’ and is the penultimate single taken from their forthcoming EP.

New single ‘Situations’ is a reflective yet punchy track with gritty vocals, a fast-paced upbeat melody and jangly, scuzzy guitars. Lyrically it looks back at past actions and examines how things could have been handled differently after having the time to heal. Produced by Steve Osborne (New Order, Happy Mondays) and Mike Peden (Lighthouse Family) and mixed by Caesar (Boygenius, Wet Leg, Beach House), the track continues to showcase the band’s ability to balance dark lyrical content with buoyant melodies.

Bria says; “At the heart of this song is an apology. An acknowledgement of past actions, self-reflection and owning up to the times you let someone down. No-one’s perfect, sometimes running away from something feels like the easiest option at the time, but it can only fuel self-doubt and guilt later on. It’s like pressing the ejector seat to be able to survive, but missing out on the adventure itself because fear holds you back. It’s all the things I wished I could have figured out sooner and had the guts to say face to face.”
