Joy Weather is a slick power-pop trio from Los Angeles with a gorgeous self-titled LP released late last month. Formerly known as Royce, the band was put on hold around 2017 when songwriter Brian Ishiba left California for Tokyo to pursue other opportunities.
However, it wasn’t long before Ishiba realized what he had left behind and began writing the new album, which explores concepts like isolation, personal reflection, reconciliation and emotional growth with a half-smile.
The reunited band also includes Ed Baida (bass) and Joey Grabmeier (drums).
