Boris and the Joy
Boris and the Joy’s flexible indie-folk-electro-pop stylings shimmer with psychedelic undertones, soul-baring lyrics and intimate incantations of love restored. With an acoustic, electric guitar and equal parts tender and surreal vocals, this project reflects the beauty and pain experienced in the journey of profound transformation. The latest EP "I See It Now" carries a loose storyline of the way we try to make sense of life, particularly in the aftermath of a lost love. The Russian-Ukrainian singer; Boris, composer and guitar player has toured the world as the guitarist of gypsy-punk band Gogol Bordello since 2015 and fronted his own unit Hey Guy for over 10 years. Drawing on his travels, the idea of kismet, and the philosophy on dealing with heartache, I See It Now sees Pelekh shedding skin and dancing around the deadweight. "This EP reacts with the serendipity of each situation and the decisions I made in that moment," he says.
