Joyce Manor – “The Jerk” Video
California’s Joyce Manor’s third studio album, Never Hungover Again, comes out today, and it’s full of those happy-sad riffs that define classic emo. Relative newcomers to the scene, Joyce Manor’s sound would nonetheless fit snugly amongst their predecessors on this list, had they been around a decade or two ago. “The Jerk” is one of the new album’s strongest tracks, clocking in at a characteristically brief 1:46, and is cheerily plaintive from beginning to end. The video, a grainy mishmash of handheld camera footage, is as visually wistful as the song’s keened chorus. Watch.
