Tucked away just north of the Bay Area’s iconic punk scene is Sonoma County, where bands like Bracket, Tsunami Bomb, and many others blossomed in the 1990s. Arriving late to the party is One Armed Joey, who have been promoting the once-forgotten melodic punk of the area since 2014. Since then, the trio has played all over the state, self-released two EPs, won four Bohemian NorBay Music Awards for Best Punk Band, and have now recorded their first full-length album, “Happiness, To Me”, coming May 27th 2022 on Sell the Heart Records.

Quote: “ ‘Happiness, To Me’ is an album about finding joy in the inner-struggles that we face every day, and realizing that you can’t relate your own sense of well-being to anybody else. For us, we took our problems and anxieties and turned that into music, creating happiness out of turmoil. If we’re having a bad day, getting in a room and playing music together gives us the opportunity to reflect and say ‘Hey, today sucked, but we love playing these songs together, and that’s awesome’”

The debut single, “Numbstruck”, pummels the listener with hard-hitting rhythms, driving counterpoint between guitar and bass, and an inner-battle between the selfless heart and the selfish mind (“Blinded by disbelief and selfishness; where’s my selflessness?”). The song describes a feeling of apathy brought on by an overabundance of negativity, and longing for grief over detachment (“I’m quite numb to disdain, though I prefer the rain”). Splitting up verses and choruses with melancholic and angular instrumentals gives the listener moments to catch a glimpse into the narrator’s conflicting emotions, all without missing a beat.

Singer/guitarist Avery says of the track - "Numbstruck is about the anxiety brought on by watching the world and everything around you continuously change, but getting to the point where you’re numb to it all and would rather feel something rather than nothing. I feel like whenever I'm overwhelmed, I look back on simpler times and wish for that naivety, but then realize how selfish that can be. Dealing with significant life changes is a challenge, but accepting and embracing those life changes is even harder."
