“The places that you did not even know existed are the ones where you will find greatest happiness”. JOYCUT makes music for the future, weaving its sound from a mass of electronics and two drum kits.Orchestral breathings, cinematic saturations, tribal drumming and industrial percussion.The Bologna based band design atmospheric layers of sound with a dark edge, a massive beat, a twitching melancholy and inventiveness that makes them hypnotic in their power and imagination.The band's last album, PiecesOfUsWereLeftOnTheGround took the band to new heights, evidenced by the album's continued success, with a never-ending tour of over 300 dates across North America, Asia andEurope. With the digital mantra #JoyCutNeverStops the band touched more than 60 countries, culminating in a Top 5 European Talent Exchange Programme [ETEP] position. Following a successful TEDx performance in Verona and inspired by their recent vivid travels to the East, JOYCUT played a sold out Venice Biennale show debuting their new six-acts “Opera” K O M O R E B I, a soundtrack tribute to Japan: a combination of their dramatic music with visual art chapters that created a world to get lost in. Komorebi is the “distinctive effect of sunlight as it filters through the thin gossamer leaves of trees”. Nature is at the heart of their philosophy. Commitment to environmental issues has led JOYCUT to participate in many sustainability green projects and campaigns. JOYCUT have been personally invited by Robert Smith to his Meltdown Festival at Southbank Centre in London in 2018. JOYCUT also shared the main stage at INmusic Festival with The Cure in 2019. JOYCUT will be honoured to perform for the very first time in Sweden, bringing all the shades of theirdreamscapes of blue tinged beauty, in a show that will reveal unpublished "tracks".

They formed, they toured, they conquered." - Clash Magazine (UK) "mass of electronics are the tools that JoyCut use to make their magic” - Daytrotter (US)
