OutControlJoys is a band hailing from Pokhara, known as the City Of Lakes, which is in the country of Nepal. The project seems to be the work of one individual named Samn and this demo EP looks like it’s the first material from the band. The music on Division (Demo EP) is a mix of dreampop and shoegaze with some post-punk elements thrown in for good measure.
There is some good stuff here. Far Away is pulsating an energetic whilst Aash, which is one of two songs sung in his native tongue, is melodic and dreamy. Sunrise (feat. S. Rai) is another fast-paced affair with some lovely sounds emerging. To be honest there is not a filler track amongst the five on offer and you should lend the whole EP your ears.
The Division (Demo EP) is out digitally on Samn’s own RIS Records label of which he is the co-founder.
