The Joy Hotel

The Joy Hotel are a seven piece alt-rock band formed in the heart of the east end of Glasgow, consisting of members Emme Woods, Luke Boyce, Jack Boyce, Juan Laforet, Jack Borrill, Jenny Clifford and Scott Flanagan.

Born of a shared love for vintage pop, vocal groups and layered arrangements, Luke and Emme began crafting songs built around moody duetting-harmony. Finally, crammed into the living room of a top floor tenement, the band developed a sound that is a mixture of dreamy pop, psych rock and alt-country. Their name encapsulates the idea of transient joy, cinematic imagination and an escape from melancholy.
