Joy Zipper - Oral Symphony


Bio:
Joy Zipper is an American duo from Long Island, New York, made up of Tabitha Tindale and Vincent Cafiso, who are also a married couple. The duo has been playing dream pop since the late 1990s. The band is named for Tindale's mother. Their songs are underpinned with darker scarred lyrics (suggested in interviews to have been inspired by the death of Cafiso's father) causing them to be famously compared to, 'a candy apple with a razor blade inside'. Musical influences of the band vary from 1960s rock outfits The Beatles, The Velvet Underground and most associated, The Beach Boys, to early 1990s noise rock pioneers My Bloody Valentine, and The Breeders. In December 2019 The Guardian newspaper listed "Christmas Song" as one of the 50 Greatest Christmas songs.

Since forming Joy Zipper have released 3 albums, 1 mini-album, several EPs and appeared on many compilation albums. Their last album release, "The Heartlight Set" was released way back in 2005, and apart from a couple of tribute album recordings (the last being in 2011) they've been rather quiet. There are signs of new activity on their youtube page, including some delightful lockdown videos and a couple of (so far) unreleased tracks, check them out here, so there is hope that one day we may see a new Joy Zipper album.
