Joy Opposites was formed around the songwriting partnership of Adam Graham and Imran Siddiqi in 2016.
In summer of that year they released their first album, ‘Swim’, produced by Alex Newport (At The Drive In, Death Cab for Cutie) and recorded at Dave Grohl’s legendary Studio 606 in Los Angeles. The record immediately earned the band their first ever live appearance at Summer Sonic, one of the biggest and most well-known music festivals in Japan. Following tours with some of Japan’s biggest domestic rock artists such as MAN WITH A MISSION, coldrain and Crossfaith, as well as main support slots for US bands Nothing and Citizen, the band went back into the studio and self-produced their second album ‘Find Hell’ in 2017. Recorded with engineer Liam Nolan (Adele, Paul McCartney, ZAYN) at Metropolis Studios in London, this album saw the band widening their sonic palette and experimenting more with synths and programmed beats, whilst not forgetting their poppy yet dark rock music roots. In 2019, they released 'Bad Phase', featuring covers by Alice In Chains, Phoebe Bridgers, Life Of Agony and Billie Eilish. The EP's title track proved to be their most popular song yet and was shortly followed by a single titled "Pillbug", released alongside the band's own Double IPA 'Joy Hopposites' in collaboration with Tokyo Craft Brewing Co. The duo are currently working on their next full-length album titled 'Trash'.
