LP version. Includes CD. Belgian 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. LP includes bonus track "Stony Grey."
