Australian trio The Peep Tempel return with their long-awaited third album Joy. Recorded and mixed with Anna Laverty at Sing Sing Studios. Central to Joy and The Peep Tempel's earlier albums is vivid storytelling. Characters in their songs are personified by varying vocal styles, with the band's rhythm section and off-kilter guitar sound, creating music that pounds, lurches and staggers around creating a perfect backdrop for each short story. Joy – for the most part – is an exploration of the human state of mind. Human thought is a pure and true chaos and the album represents the full spectrum of it, from the paranoid, yet elated "Totality" to the stark, isolated landscape of "Constable."
