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 from a pop album in 2015: songwriting meets crooning, electro beats snuggle up with chanson, there is a love song on the dance floor, a heartbreaking duet and slow-dance ballad for eternity. In short: Joy Wellboy make "Love On The Beat". Wim assumes the role of a born-again Serge Gainsbourg and Joy plays a Jane Birkin, in scuffed black leather jacket with a The Slits patch. One is reminded of New Wave hits, the New German Wave, of the soundtracks of French Nouvelle Vague cinema - and Leonard Cohen in his "First We Take Manhattan" phase.
