Big Joanie Shares New Track “Happier Still”

London’s black feminist punk band Big Joanie have released a new one-off single, “Happier Still” on Kill Rock Stars (US) and Daydream Library Series (UK). Arriving alongside an official video filmed by Curtis Lewis and edited by Madelaine Burton, singer and guitarist Stephanie Phillips had this to say about ‘Happier Still’: “I started writing Happier Still after our first album came out in late 2018 and finished writing it while we were in Austin for SXSW 2019. This song is about wanting to break out of a depression and pushing yourself to feel better. I like the idea of chanting “I’ll feel fine” and then hoping that will eventually turn things around.” The new track follows the band’s 2020 single “Cranes in the Sky”, a cover of Solange Knowles released on Jack White’s Third Man Records.

Big Joanie are on a mission to bring their unique feminist punk chops to stages and fans across the globe! The band combines the fury of nineties riot grrrl with synth-heavy post punk. Following their 2018 debut album Sistahs on Thurston Moore and Eva Prinz’s label Daydream Library Series, the band secured a coveted run of support slots playing with Bikini Kill, Gossip, Sleater-Kinney and IDLES in the UK.
