Amoeba Review

08/28/2013

Foy Vance’s Joy of Nothing comes with its fair share of expectations. The Irish singer/songwriter has toured with Ed Sheeran, has had a song appear on “Grey’s Anatomy” and released an indie album and well-received EP. So it’s a boon for fans that Joy of Nothing more than lives up to its hype. Vance is an ace at writing about affairs of the heart (as on the grandiose “At Least My Heart Was Open”), as well as writing the kind of galloping folk-rock songs that get fists pumping at arenas (opener “Closed Hand, Full of Friends” begs for hands clapping along as Vance works up to a soaring chorus). Though Vance is the star here, he also teams up with Bonnie Raitt on the stunning, spare “You and I,” which shows off his real songwriting chops in a Springsteen-style song of strength; and on “Guiding Light,” he’s joined by Sheeran in beautiful harmony on a song about overcoming loneliness. It’s a stunner from start to finish, with more spine-tingling moments than you can count. Read More
