Love’n’Joy is one of the most successful Ukrainian indie-rock bands internationally. Playing hundreds of concerts per year all over Europe, including festivals such as Reeperbahn and Eurosonic Noorderslag, Iceland Airwaves.
Love’n’Joy’s sound draws influences from Brit-pop, the 60s, and 70s psychedelia, and elements of indie music. Plenty of heavy guitars give their sound a rougher edge, and strong lyrics reflect the spirit of a new, resurgent Ukrainian culture.
Since May 2022, the band has been touring to raise money for its campaign « Musicians Defend Ukraine ». They have played more than 70 shows across Europe.
The new LP ‘Half-home’ turned out to be a prophetic work of the band. The album was finished at the band’s recording studio « Crimy Rec » in Kyiv, exactly 3 days before the russian full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
