The ’80s wave sound has made a return, and The Joyride is right at the forefront of the synth-pop revival. Their use of synths and drum machines combined with their infectious enthusiasm captures “About You Now” in a way that pays homage to the original while making it exciting for a new generation.
The Joyride are a synthpop duo, formed at Edge Hill University by bedroom producers Felix & Justin.
With inspirations from The Human League, a-ha, The 1975 and The Midnight, The Joyride’s tracks are interweaved sounds of euphoric-jumping melodies, epic 80’s drums, jangly pop guitars, and layers of lush vocals. Transporting you back to the distinct 80s era, whilst remaining true to the modern pop culture.
The Joyride are set on producing synthpop styled bangers that transcend generations.
