jo passed (2017)

Vancouver, BC

Recurrent Sled Island attendees may have seen Joseph Hirabayashi with The SSRIs, Sprïng or his current project, jo passed. A dynamic songwriter in his reckoning of lethargy and jitter, jo’s signature is pitting angular movements against a pervasive theme of gloom. Pouting while grinning, jo passed is bedroom rock that makes sense of the relationship between despair and celebration.
