JOAN & THE GIANTS - BLOODSTREAM


Hailing from Perth, Western Australia (Tame Impala, Stella Donnelley, San Cisco, John Buttler) Joan & The Giants are an Alternative Pop band who's emotionally raw, fierce and powerful music has placed them as one of the most exciting new bands in the Australian music scene.

Joan & The Giants formed in late February, 2019 and have thus far released 3 singles; 'Hold Me' which was nominated for a Western Australian Music Award and received Triple J airplay, 'Cruel' which peaked at #4 on the Australian Amrap charts and 'Wolves' which saw them headline Shinju Matsuri Festival to a crowd of 7,000. The band have also supported artists, such as Odette and Arno Faraji. 


Joan & The Giants fourth release Bloodstream is a fast paced, powerful track which takes a darker look at a broken relationship. The lyrics are deeply vulnerable, and whilst centred around feeling helpless and defeated, there are moments of power and hope. 'Bloodstream' was recorded at Perth's 'Pavement Studios' with Lance Robinson, who recently engineered Coldplay's 'Everyday Life' and produced by guitarist Aaron Birch and vocalist Grace Newton-Wordsworth.

Blending personal lyrics, emotive guitar, ambient synths and booming drums Joan & The Giants captivating sound has been likened to bands such as Daughter and Florence & The Machine.
