This uplifting Mt. Joy set comes at a good time for us all. It begins with the bright keyboard sounds of Jackie Miclau introing “Strangers” from this year’s Rearrange Us. “Well, I guess I’ll have to fall in love with strangers,” sings frontman Matt Quinn, as his bandmates check in from all over. Sonically-rich as ever, be sure to check out the band’s version of “Silver Lining” from their 2018 debut.
Mt. Joy had embarked on a tour with The Lumineers earlier this year, which they saw cut short. “We can’t wait to get back out to Colorado and play for everybody,” Matt says in his intro. “Until then, I hope everyone is being kind to each other. Take care of your neighbors and be safe.”
