Always fast, always upbeat, these guys are successful in making their music fun both live and recorded. The Joy Of Painting is a Nashville-based band that delivers finely crafted garage-pop layered with droll, witty lyrics that seem to mock what it feels like to trudge through the ages of 20 to 29.
Pulling inspiration from such icons as Elvis Costello, Weezer and Butch Walker, their new EP, Tender Age, “is just the band tearing pages out of the pop playbook,” says frontman Garreth Spinn. Their two previously released EPs, Asterisk and Lighten Up (the latter on 7” vinyl via South Division records) gave the band an opportunity to find a home in the pop genre while walking the balance beam between grit and blithe indifference.
