Better Joy, the alternative-pop band created and led by Bria Keely, is a deft fusion of classic and contemporary influences, boldly celebrating the tensions between opposing states. Introversion and extroversion, complexity and simplicity, the literal and the metaphorical are all polarities put under the microscope on her forthcoming single ‘Hard To Love’. And it’s more than just a heady introduction to the band’s Manchester-based front woman – it’s a compelling addition to the rich musical legacy of the north-west of England.
From the accumulated experiences of 10 years’ worth of passion and exploration, Joe Sherrin, Kane Eagle and James Luxton have come together to form MOULD. Tethered by their love for music, they have played together in various bands such as Cagework, SLONK, JUMBO, Milo’s Planes, Radiators and Let’s Kill Janice.
For 5 years they have been a backing band, both touring and on recording, for Fenne Lily. This has included several tours throughout the US and Europe that has not only solidified the members as great friends, but also demonstrated their abilities as outstanding musicians.
MOULD is a project born out of closeness, and its creativity is a testament to the bond that has formed through the shared devotion of all 3 band members. Replacing Joe’s solo project, SLONK, the band are focused on making music that immerses their audience in loud and sweaty micro hits.
