Album Review
Alex Strong
Reviewed 2024-02-12
Mia Joy is from Illinois and started making music in 2016. Album (really a short EP) consists of 4 songs. Ambient and slow; Lots of reverb, vocals are very light, like having a good trip high while in an echo chamber. Like a more reverb female more ethereal Lord Huron.

Favorites: 4
No FCCs.

1. Alive (1:08) = Voice and reverb defines the style for rest of the album low key; harmonies quite nice. Also introduces the big themes about the falseness of everything.
2.* More Green (3:40) = very ethereal at first, much like 1; twangy guitar + drums kick in about 0:45 (adding a lot of life to the album); gently swells around 2:15 and finishes by 3:00. Ends smoothly. Vocals are the most audible of all the songs. Our trip is going well.
3. 4th of July (2:59) = starts with a good kick drum with an off axis beat, vocals act as an instrument. Gets slow and cascading. You start thinking about the good times with your ex on your trip - bitter sweet.
4. That's a Lie (4:37) = Gentle electric guitar, vocals around 0:35. slowly swells to around 3:00 - its a lie is repeated quite often in the same ethereal way. Ends tinkling bells, guitar fades out. You're falling asleep from your trip. Last 3 seconds are science.
