Muscles of Joy are a new music ensemble based in Glasgow, Scotland. An all female psychedelic collaboration, with artists Anne-Marie Copestake, Ariki Poreous, Jenny O’Boyle, Katy Dove, Leigh Ferguson, Esther Congreave, and Victoria Morton, the band uses their songs to explore the intricacies of the human voice. Recalling the mutant contortions of Patty Waters, the otherworldly choir of OOIOO, and the disturbed storytelling of the Shadow Ring, the seven voices of Muscles of Joy soar and writhe atop a sparse, sonic architecture built from guitars, percussion, and synthesizers. This will be their first performance in New York, following appearances at the Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum, Boston and Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow.
