CRITIC REVIEWS

The Line of Best Fit

Choosing to drink from the glass half full, Further Joy is an album that takes stock of life’s problems and does its best to tint them in rose.

Dork

‘Further Joy’ is the sound of a gang regrouping from an enforced pause and hitting the fallout head-on.

80
DIY

It’s mainstream baiting but still retains a distinctness and authenticity that leaves any finger-pointing purists looking foolish, particularly since these songs will inevitably end up stuck in their heads. In short, it’s bloody lovely.

NME
The LA band sand off their rough edges with this third album, which still packs the emotional vigour and sense of personal growth they're renowned for.
80
Clash
Despite the prevailing sense of anxiety and insecurity looming in the lyrics, the album finds its strength in concealing those evocative feelings behind catchy pop stylings.

Kerrang!

Perhaps more than ever, the LA big dreamers are living without regrets, taking chances while dancing with their fear. Even better, Further Joy points the way to better things ahead.

AllMusic

This could've been a cloying direction if it weren't for Night's sharp skills as a songwriter, the palpable chemistry of the Regrettes, and the sleek shine of the production, each contributing to the exuberance of Further Joy.

Gigwise

These complex, relevant themes are where Further Joy really finds its strength, concealing evocative feelings of insecurity behind catchy pop stylings, comparable to Self Esteem’s Prioritise Pleasure.

Really fun and enjoyable pop album. I'm not sure if I've heard "Barely on My Mind" on Tiktok or something, but I've heard that song many times already and have always loved it, so that was a pleasant surprise. Overall very well done record.

Uma surpresa música, uma sonoridade que me agrada muito e já torcendo pela carreira da banda que inclusive toca esse ano no Coachella. O single Anxieties (Out of Time) é um acerto sem tamanho e tem feito muitos momentos meus felizes seja dirigindo ou relaxando no meu quarto.
