Deaf Joe returns with Love Stories, an album of ambient love-soaked bliss

Deaf Joe is an artist from Waterford who has previously released abstract folk music like 2014’s album From The Heights Of A Dream.

Where that release went for textured noise and treated effects, Deaf Joe’s latest album Love Stories dives headfirst into the ambient sonic water with more electronically-driven tracks that forgo traditional song structure and vocals in favour of mood-based arrangements.

The album came about after Joe worked on an ambient set for the Another Love Story Festival last year which developed into a full 8-track release. Its main inspirations according to its author are “the sound of the ocean roaring on an Icelandic black sand beach / swimming in Copenhagen harbour at the height of summer / The sight of a kaleidoscopic sunset over a volcanic lake in the Philippines / chasing memories of special places with lovers and loved ones he’ll never forget.”


Check out the album’s soaring sonics with standouts including opener ‘Taal Lake’, ‘Reynisfjara’ and ‘Ocean Beach’.
