Current Joys

TSM represents Current Joys licensing/sync rights for: World

Artist Description: Current Joys is the enigmatic solo project of Henderson, Nevada born songwriter Nicholas Rattigan. In addition to his two-piece band with Jacob Rubeck, Surf Curse, Rattigan has been releasing a prolific catalog of heart-wrenching no wave ballads via Bandcamp under a handful of names (including The Nicholas Project and Tele/visions), eventually choosing Current Joys as the permanent moniker, based on a song by folk-artist Liam the Younger of the same name.

In his most recent offering, Voyager, there’s plenty of easter eggs for the astute listener, but the sonic cinematic parallels are louder than the film references in these tracks. Songs that sound like the soundtrack to a film you’ve never seen, maybe because Rattigan’s lyricism makes you feel like the protagonist backed by sweeping strings. At other moments, the album is more raw and exposed, Rattigan’s delivery compellingly harried in the vein of Taking Back Sunday, with dynamic drums reminiscent of The National taking center stage on tracks like “Dancer in The Dark” and the quick-footed and anxious “Naked.”
