Stumbling upon this band by chance kind of fits the whole vibe DISJOY are going for.

Upon wondering what Cardiff post-punks LUVV were up to, after not hearing from them for quite some time, it was to be found that they were consumed by the anxious mist that they were birthed from, and something nastier took their place.

DISJOY take all that was great about LUVV, and go further to where that band never went. LUVV’s songs were on edge, sometimes jubilant, always bloodshot. DISJOY’s are venomous, of disgust and bile. And that’s just from one three-track EP.

Just like with LUVV, choruses rarely extend among a few syllables, but it’s the tight songwriting that kills it here. Fuzzed-up, murky basslines creep on and on, flashes of guitar chords cutting through the darkness. No song lasting edging over four minutes, Disjoy keep their sonic ideas to the point, nothing here but brief stabs of sludgy punk.

Having just started recording their debut album, the Cardiff post-punk scene won’t stop biting soon.
