October: the seasons which bring us pleasant pastel skies, the true changing of leaves, and of course Halloween. But there’s nothing scary about this Friday evening; the evening that Brighton-based Sick Joy cast their spell over Manchester’s own Jimmy’s, bringing fresh faces The C33’s along for the ride.
Having their live debut in their hometown certainly allowed The C33’s to find their element without hesitation. The trio effortlessly floats through tracks from their hot-off-the-press EP ‘48 hours at Neon Palms’. With the blissful vocal combination of frontman Cav Green & drummer Judy Jones, the crowd basks in the beauty of ‘Better Luck Next Time, Soul Seeker!’- a track which certainly tickles nostalgia. Drawing the set to a close, you couldn’t help but want more.
Tasting the sweet anticipation in the air, the first date of Sick Joy’s six-long UK tour was lovingly embraced by a full room of fans & friends alike. Punching through the Autumnal air with a gritty, strong introductory riff of brand new single ‘Dissolve Me’ meant bassist Danny Pitson instantly projected his way into every heart. With a sheer velocity of energy, the friendly-faced trio took the stage by storm.
