Clay Joule – “Cup of Joe”

A warming track that calls for unity, “Cup of Joe” is a recent single from Clay Joule. Lyrics bemoan the difficulty of finding shared point of views, while emphasizing the shared aspects many share — like enjoying a cup of coffee with fond company. A nocturnal synth whisper lingers in the background, as perky guitar licks complement a dynamic vocal presence from Joule, who alternates seamlessly from the verses’ introspection into the title-touting bridge and ensuing invigoration.

“Why don’t we all take a sip?” the vocals implore, moving into an especially infectious sequence past the three-minute turn. A scorching guitar solo, with an ’80s tonal nostalgia, drives into a final spirited vocal send-off. Based in Secaucus, New Jersey, Clay Joule compels with this well-written, positive-vibe success.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
