Belgain duo Joy Adegoke and Wim Janssens aka Joy Wellboy have been inseparable for years as a couple in life and art. Their second album, Wedding, sounds as complete and varied as anyone could wish for a pop album to be in 2015. Songwriting meets crooning and electro beats snuggle up with chanson; there's a love song on the dancefloor, a heartbreaking duet and slow-dance ballad for eternity. In short: Joy Wellboy make Love On the Beat. Janssens assumes the role of a born-again Serge Gainsbourg and Adegoke plays a Jane Birkin, in scuffed black leather jacket with a Slits patch. One is reminded of new wave hits, the German new wave, the soundtracks of French new wave cinema, and Leonard Cohen in his "First We Take Manhattan" phase.
