Today, Joy Orbison releases his new single “2M3 2U”, a catchy and futuristic sounding track that follows previous tracks “pinky ring” and “red velve7”.

Speaking on the new single Joy O states: “I see this one as a bit of a UK take on hyperpop. But with a bit of bass weight. the vocal part could be a sample of some garbled message of love in Bladerunner or the Fifth Element, and the main riffs had me thinking about the DJ Narrows records we’d play at youth club parties. Interesting top lines seem to be a bit absent in my world these days and I’ve definitely been influenced by contemporary drum & bass and their endless search for the catchiest wobble.”

Having performed at the likes of Sonar, Glastonbury Festival, Houghton and All Points East, 2022 also saw Joy Orbison release his take on Jorja Smith’s “Rose Rouge”, as well as another collaboration with Overmono called “Blind Date”.
