It isn’t a surprise that modern day people, especially those working within entertainment, try out many things. Some bands have actors or the other way around. Usually, there’s a semblance of attention thrown at those other professions. So, when I found out that some of the cast from Stranger Things have musical careers I was like: “Aight.” Then I saw that my favorite, nay, THE BEST CHARACTER: Steve Harrington has a solo career as an artist I was like “Sign me up!” Which brings us to now. Let’s take a dive into Joe Keery’s somewhat secret career as the wonderful Djo.
Style and Quality:
Djo’s style of music is something that brings me back to some of the psychedelic tunes from Pink Floyd. Wrap that up in a sound that’s more so alternative rock with a sprinkling of pop and you got something I’d listen to constantly.
In fact, that’s exactly what I’ve been doing. Listening to his album “Twenty Twenty,” from the jump I get the vibe I was mentioning above. But how about the vocals? I was super surprised to find that Joe Keery’s delivery is more so in the higher register. With an overall chill demeanor this one’s got all the pieces to become a favorite.
Here’s a short list of the songs I consider to be some of the best to get into Joe Keery’s alter ego Djo.
- Chateau (Feel Alright)
- Total Control
- Keep Your Head Up
- Flash Mountain
- Personal Lies
