As an ever-present figure on the Australian indie scene Joyride has made a name for himself through killer performances and a long list of powerful collaborations. Now, after 4-years of writing and finessing, Joyride has announced he will be releasing his debut EP, The Chivalrous, and it’s available as we speak.
As an added bonus, Joyride has released his EP for free. You can ingest it by whatever means you deem appropriate once you acquire the goods from his website.
You’ll notice tracks such as lead single, This Is It, coated in a baritone vocal that puts a positive spin on heartbreak.
These kinds of jams have lead critics to herald the rapper as the Taylor Swift of Aussie underground R&B, but way better. And we are inclined to agree.
With a Rolodex as big as he is (the dude is a giant), Joyride tagged his contemporary Drapht for the heavily layered track Removalist and the results beg the question, why did they wait 4-years to release this?
You may recognise his mad skills from his work on the decks with Spit Syndicate, or from the vocals he has previously contributed to Drapht and Hermitude releases. If you need more credentials, he’s also performed at SITG, headlined Secret Garden and slaps the bass for Winter People.
In case you missed it, The Chivalrous EP is available now, so get on it.
