Joy Crookes – Feet Don’t Fail Me Now

Joy Crookes is a London-based singer-songwriter of Bangladesh and Irish heritage. She grew up listening to an eclectic mix of genres, ranging from Nick Cave to King Tubby, and from Kendrick Lamar to Gregory Isaac. Borrowing a bit of each of them, she created a sound of her own. Feet Don’t Fail Me Now is her new single.

Starting off with an addictively thumping bassline, it’s a delightful slice of soul-pop summer breeze. But on top of this old-school backdrop, Crookes sings about a modern phenomenon: cancel culture.

She explains: “The track carries with it a deep sense of irony, it’s written from the perspective of someone who finds it easier to remain complicit out of a fear of being cancelled. (…) Ultimately, I hope the song encourages people to be a bit braver. It’s important to open up a dialogue, speak out, make mistakes – that’s okay and that’s how progress happens.”
