17-year old singer-producer JOY. has dropped a brooding and cinematic music clip for her first single ‘About Us‘.

JOY. (real name of Brisbane-born schoolgirl Olivia McCarthy) explores lost love and youthful melancholia in her debut EP, Ode, and this breakthrough single is no exception. 

Directed by Matthew Thorne, the video is a seaside location of shadowy silhouettes and midnight blues.

‘About Us’ pits JOY.’s Ellie Goulding-like soaring and stirring vocals against a foreboding beat of multi-instrumental emotions and swells.

Along with the new EP, JOY. will be taking to the road for her highly anticipated first headline tour which kicks off next month. She will be joined by newcomer, Owen Rabbit in the main support role. Also joining the tour will be indie/folk/pop singer Joe Mungovan, chillwavers Nakatomi, producer/vocalist Lonelyspeck and electronic pop soloist Leure.
