Nick Rattigan is the visual artist, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter behind yelpy, post-punk inflected indie bands Surf Curse and Current Joys. He created Current Joys as a way to unify his mutual love for film and music, and subsequently directed multiple music videos for the project. The grimy, thunderous songs themselves exist to free Rattigan from generalized anxiety as they embody the cyclical entrapment of the disorder while offering catharsis for those who share his experience.

When I first encountered this album I kept thinking of Adam Sandler in the Wedding Singer; "I've been listening to the Cure a lot"...it was a tad emo for my tastes...but it stuck around, set up home in my head, then my heart and now it's been the soundtrack to some bizarre moments of personal importance. And it has made all of them a little bit more special. Nick, thanks mate, just beautiful and bittersweet emotively cinematic creativity Slab Riffjaw
