Aesthetica Magazine, UK:
"Sound Living is the darkly soulful debut album from London based duo, Drunk With Joy. They enjoyed impressive acclaim for their first single, I Say Goodbye (promoted entirely by the internet and word of mouth), and this full length effort looks set to follow in its foot-steps. Sound Living is an understated masterpiece; it is atmospheric and often flirts with the symphonic. Taking elements of electronica and folk, Mila Oshin and Kris Jager met while recording independently in London – each impressed with the other’s work. This unlikely meeting has created a brooding and moody minimalistic soundscape of epic proportions... The band’s previous involvement in poetry, art and dance is evident in the feel of this album, providing it with a sophisticated and intelligent air; something that makes DWJ interesting and individual."
The Daily Vault, USA:
"Sincere and non-presumptuous alt-pop is Drunk With Joy''s mantra for creativity, and the formula behind Sound Living. This formula seems to work perfectly, as this record shows an immensely promising act for the future. Drunk With Joy has the potential to be this generation''s Eurythmics; hopefully someday it will."
Legends Magazine, USA:
"Drunk With Joy was a fine receipt for me, considering the abysmal nature of today''s underground wanna-bes. Sound Living sounds great, differentiates itself from electro-pop of the day by keeping it a tad more aggressive and certainly darker aesthetically."
Morbid Outlook Magazine, USA:
" Indescribable. Female vocals over lo-fi, minimalist, electronic arrangements. It works sooooo well! Can’t call it pop; it’s far too mature, adult, sophisticated... and dark. Expressive of sadness, resignation, and beauty; an aesthetically powered light in the darkness of the rude world with its modern zeitgeist full of business buzzing and the hard-sell fist."
Music Folio, USA:
"Drunk With Joy''s first single I Say Goodbye, promoted solely on the internet, landed the group worldwide acclaim for dragging the concept of protest songs into the 21st century, with their moody concoction of teutonic beats, twisted guitar and cello symphonies, haunting vocals and brutally honest lyrics. ''Sound Living'' is a superb release from an up and coming talent… Recommended!"
