Love’n’Joy (Musicians Defend Ukraine)

Love’n’Joy is one of the most successful Ukrainian Indie Rock bands with an international profile. Having played numerous shows all over Europe, including festivals such as Reeperbahn and Eurosonic Noorderslag, they have also shared the stage with bands like Kikagaku Moyo, Boogarins, The Shivas and Petrol Girls.

Love’n’Joy’s sound draws influences from Brit Pop, 60s & 70s Psychedelia and elements of Indie Rock. Plenty of heavy guitars are giving their sound a rougher edge and the strong, biographic lyrics reflect the spirit of a new, resurgent Ukrainian culture.
Since May 2022, the band has been touring to raise money for its campaign “Musicians Defend Ukraine”. They played more than 70 shows across Europe and will tour the UK, Canada and the USA in 2023 as well as expanding in Europe. Every show is helping to support their cause, raise money for the donation campaign and support Ukrainian artists both in -and outside of Ukraine.
