Joyce marked themselves as a significant act on the Danish music scene in the difficult year 2020.
The band released the critically acclaimed debut album Formskifter (‘shapeshifter’), which brought several of their songs in rotation on Danish radio, they managed to play a series of sold-out concerts before everything shut down, and they were part of a number of TV shows, including P3 Guld and DR2's 2020 celebration of Roskilde Festival.
Formskifter is a captivating record, which is characterised by the promise of the title: It changes style and mood numerous times along the way. At one point, the songs can appear melancholic and anxiety-filled, the next they can turn into anger and put tension in the highest gear. Extremes are at work here, and Joyce wins big on the fact that they sound like no one but themselves.
Joyce is a band that is hungrier than ever to play live again. They should have played at Roskilde Festival in 2020 – so it feels good and right to invite them to the stage at Summer Days.
If you're among the lucky ones who've caught the band alive, you know they're giving everything they have got, making your ears flap.
Joyce performs at Summer Days on 26 June alongside Ganger and GRETA.
