"Cleanse," Joywave's fourth studio album, emerges as a poignant reflection of tumultuous times, conceived and crafted during a period of global uncertainty and personal introspection. Released as a follow-up to 2020's "Possession," the album takes shape amidst a world grappling with a relentless pandemic and societal unrest. With touring off the table, frontman Daniel Armbruster retreats to his home studio, channeling the zeitgeist into ten tracks that resonate with raw emotion and introspective depth. In "Cleanse," Armbruster offers a candid glimpse into his psyche, confronting themes of mortality, resilience, and empathy in the face of adversity. Standout tracks like the infectious "Buy American" and the introspective "After Coffee" capture the essence of everyday life amidst chaos, while the ambient groove of "Pray For The Reboot" and the brooding expansiveness of "The Inversion" invite listeners into a sonic journey of contemplation and catharsis. "Every Window Is A Mirror" serves as a poignant reminder of the inherent human struggle to empathize with the experiences of others, encapsulating the album's overarching message of empathy and connection in a fractured world. Through "Cleanse," Joywave delivers a musical testament to resilience and solidarity, offering both solace and solidarity in uncertain times.
