PREMIERE: Watch JOYFULTALK’s new video for “Buschbabies”

Nova Scotia's eerie electronic trio JOYFULTALK trip out to the wilderness.

March 16, 2016

Since relocating from Calgary to Crousetown, Nova Scotia, Jay Crocker has become a Maritime mad scientist of sound with his latest project JOYFULTALK. Adding hands on deck from collaborators Dice Parks and Will Vandermeulen, the trio put their ballcap-clad heads down and manipulate home-built electronics into eerily melodic instrumentals.

The extended video for “Buschbabies” (a collaboration between Vandermeulen and Andrea Thorne) features a mysterious neon-flashing figure emerging from the Bay of Fundy and searching the wilderness for something elusive. As the standout sound-suite from JOYFULTALK’s 2015 album MUUIXX twitches and turns between head-bobbing passages, you may find yourself losing time while following this extra dimensional entity.

Watch the video below:
