A well made-up fierce panda one sheet

The Act: JOEY FOURR

The Track: ‘UHMERICKA’

The Format: DOWNLOAD SINGLE

The Release Date: NOVEMBER 11TH 2016

The Label: fierce panda

The Truth: JOEY FOURR is from London. ‘Uhmericka’ is a brand new single, produced by MJ of Hookworms and released as part of fierce panda’s 2016 singles club. This is the second of three singles JOEY FOURR is rolling out over the next few months leading to the release of the sophomore ‘Velvet Realness’ album, which is due out spring 2017.

You can’t miss JOEY FOURR with the multi-coloured hair (fluorescent, natch) and the Eat The Rich t-shirts and the deathless ‘The Man Who Fell To Earth’-esque pallor who was announced to the world with 2015’s uberflash ‘To The Floorr’ album. Predictably then ‘Uhmericka’ is a hyper-melodic retro-modern musical venture, lush and dreamy with a strawberry sweet glam / janglepop overcurrent – much like creative cousins Ariel Pink, Connan Mockasin and Mac Demarco, JOEY FOURR is an artiste of many tangled angles. To wit, here is what JOEY says of the ‘Uhmericka’ track which crashlands in the week of the US elections:

“i have a luv hate affair with the myth of uhmericka . i have a luv hate affair with how it balances atrocities against its own people as well as doing whatever horrific things it wants outside of its border yet as a creative culture it can be a beautiful source of inspiration for the popular , the colourful , the cartoony and the unreal . every colour you can imagine is physical . everything it touches seems to shimmer , for the good and the bad are both ugly. beauty is set at an unbelievably high standard, allowing so our imperfections thrive and live on, we decide what happens next with forks spinning in hot spaghetti .”

JOEY FOURR hereby joins the thoroughly artistic flotilla of talent (see Alphaduka, Cavalry, Coquin Migale, HUSH!, Chalk, 485C, White Giant, Affairs) which has sailed by as part of fierce panda’s 2016 singles club, whereby the label releases 12 ace new releases by 12 ace new bands throughout the year with the gently generous support of the Arts Council.
