What others are saying about the Joie De Vivre/Prawn split:

“Joie De Vivre and Prawn both revel in understated melodies, jangly guitar chords and a pleasing sense of melancholy. (4/5 stars)”- Alternative Press

“Both Prawn and Joie De Vivre are huge parts of the current emo wave but at different ends of the spectrum, JDV with their perfect Midwest, heartfelt songs and Prawn with their more epic, almost post rock influences. But together they sit seamlessly next to each other which makes this split EP very easy to listen to again and again.”- Is This Thing On?
