#rock #folk-rock #coming-soon

Jouis return with their second album 'Mind Bahn', their first album for None More Records following up 2015's self-released 'Dojo'. Jouis are a three piece from Brighton, UK comprising Joe Woodham (vocals, bass, guitars) Louis Pavlo (vocals, keyboard, synths and piano) and Adam Johnson (vocals, drums and percussion).

'Mind Bahn' is 9 tracks of groove laden psychedelic folk rock. Drawing on influences as far and wide as the British jazz-tinged folk scene of Nick Drake and John Martyn, the contemporary Canterbury Scene of groups like Syd Arthur and a sprinkling of the 70's scene of groups like Hatfield & The North and Caravan. Mixed in with the folk and progressive influences, comes hints of BADBADNOTGOOD, Khruangbin and Polar Bear in the tight rhythms, the space of Debussy's piano pieces and the experimental electronica of Stereolab and early Broadcast.

Jouis' sound melds these eclectic influences with their own mellifluous West Coast harmonies, inimitably skewed grooves and ambitious, spaced-out musical explorations. The first single is 'Sinking Statues' a riff led, groove heavy banger, and will be available as a digital single in January. Some key tracks to dig in to include the luscious opener Collapse Rewind, with its signature Jouis harmonies, circular bass and drum groove and spacious guitar which sets the scene for the record brilliantly. Turtle shows Jouis at their grooviest peak, with a killer Rhodes-led groove rolling underneath more incredible harmonies. There's also the opportunity to hear the band wig-out on the sense-defying, time-warping groove of Medievil. Lyrically, the album's theme is life itself. Birth, death and round again. Take a trip on the Mind Bahn, a flowing train of thought through Jouis' collective mind.
