Shares new song, ‘PLAYY’

UK Live Dates

Debut album TO THE FLOORR out now via MÏLK Records

“With sonic nods to Diamonds and Pearls era Prince and the kind of deep synth-driven arrangements Mariah Carey would have wailed over in 1990, “PLAYY” is sexy as hell. Like, Kate-Winslet’s-hand-sliding-down-the-steamy-back-window-of-a-car-in-Titanic levels of seduction. Add that to the intimacy of the video and consider yourself chirpsed.” – Noisey
Ahead of their November UK tour, JOEY FOURR has unveiled new song ‘PLAYY’, the first new music since the release of debut album TO THE FLOORR on MÏLK Records earlier this year. The track is available for free download from
Joey explains how the video came about…
“JOEY FOURR were booked to play a short 4 date tour in Portugal, on the morning of our flights I couldn’t find my passport, the others flew without me. The plan was I would find it and book a new flight for the next day of day after and meet them in Sobrainho da Ribeira. I turned my room inside trying to find the passport out but without any luck. 
I painted the walls pink to keep my mind off of things. 
I wrote some songs and ‘PLAYY’ came out of this weird situation of being in one place physically but mentally elsewhere. 
After 3 or 4 days the passport was found tucked deep inside the bag we used to carry the guitar pedals. It was with them the entire time. I am happy with the pink walls.”

JOEY FOURR head out on their third UK tour in support of the release in November, dates below:
4th November – Northampton, Garibaldi Hotel

Praise for ‘TO THE FLOORR’:

“ like swimming in an iridescent sea of chorus with a thudding bass line keeping you afloat.” – Noisey

“Nonchalance defined, vocals sounding bored-out-their-skull while also quietly crafting something brilliantly deft and complex. Shout out to the “la la la” section, 2015’s finest so far.” – DIY

“It’s got a kind of ZE Records-ish quality – bizarre, but with a good sense of humour” – Dummy

“It sounds kind of how strawberry ice cream tastes, I imagine: dream pop meets funk in a twee cavalcade, melodies shining gleefully and resolutely like Mac Demarco times fourr.” – The Vinyl Factory
