Alternative-pop duo Mannequin Online just released their moody new single “Joyride.” A cheeky listen with an edgy flair, this-rough-around-the-edges composition is as catchy as it is cool.
Tethered to a punchy drum beat, “Joyride” is guided by indie-rock melodies that are nostalgic yet palatable for the modern indie fan. Their pop-leaning delivery is punctuated by a high pitched whistles offset by a flirty yet brooding vocal delivery that moves with a signature flow defined only by the duo themselves. An unsuspecting horn section swells to a brassy crescendo giving the track a bubbly edge just moments before Mannequin Online draws the curtain on their snappy, triumphant, alt-pop gem. Listen to “Joyride” below.
