Mt. Joy’s star rose quickly from a bedroom project to a well-oiled machine dubbed “your new folk-rock heroes” by Rolling Stone upon the 2018 release of their self-titled debut record. That same year and beyond, millions of streams piled up month after month, and sold-out crowds sang along to every song and grew in number with every tour and festival stop they made.
Their highly anticipated sophomore album Rearrange Us is sonically rich and expansive; producer Tucker Martine, known for his work on seminal albums by My Morning Jacket and Modest Mouse, widened Mt. Joy’s sound, and allows the growing sophistication of the songwriting and the arrangements to really shine. Mt. Joy is poised to be the indie breakout act of 2020.
