DAMIEN’s song “Joy (In My Own Time)” is about finding optimism, resiliency, and joy in the midst of difficulties. It inspires listeners to keep going and enjoy the here and now.

In his latest single, “Joy (In My Own Time),” acclaimed Ipswich darkwave musician DAMIEN plunges into the depths of worry and triumphantly stands up on the other side. “Joy (In My Own Time)” is a powerful declaration of self-affirmation that relies on the artist’s personal search for hope and resilience during moments of intense dread and insecurity.

With his second album, “Wrong Age, Wrong Race, Wrong Gender,” which was a 4ZZZ album of the week and featured the single “2 Out Of 10,” which was ranked 68th on the 4ZZZ Hot 100 countdown for 2022, DAMIEN enjoyed tremendous success in 2022. He has since followed that up with successful releases, “Nowhere” and “Empty,” which are the first two singles from the artist’s forthcoming third extended release, “Candidate For The Abyss.”

The upcoming single “Joy (In My Own Time)” by DAMIEN is a lovely and uplifting song that I had the pleasure of listening to. The song’s opening jingles and electronic keys captivate the listener and set the mood for the rest of the song. DAMIEN’s vocals start with “I got joy in my mind; I will make it in my own time,” and then the amazing bassline blazes in, keeping you nodding and tapping your feet. Although he sings about reality and life’s challenges, he does so in a positive and energizing way. Listeners will find the line “What if I told you yesterday that tomorrow is not guaranteed?” to be particularly moving. The song serves as a gentle reminder to appreciate the here and now and to take joy in the little things in life.

“Joy (In My Own Time),” which features an array of beautifully layered harmonies and soul-moving basslines, will be released in March, in collaboration with the Redcliffe social enterprise, “Tribe Clubhouse,” which is currently raising funds to purchase a community van that will be used to collect isolated and fringe living individuals and physically transport them to a place of connection and belonging.

“Joy (In My Own Time)” is an outstanding piece of music that showcases DAMIEN’s talent and creativity. It’s a song about hope, resilience, and the pursuit of happiness. DAMIEN encourages listeners to persevere through difficult times and find joy in their own way and on their own terms. It’s a message that is both timely and timeless, and it’s sure to resonate with anyone who has ever struggled to find their place in the world.


“Joy (In My Own Time)” is currently being used in conjunction with “Tribe Clubhouse” as part of their fundraising effort for the month of March. It will be streamable on March 31, 2023.

In conclusion, “Joy (In My Own Time)” is a great song that should be added to DAMIEN’s discography. The lyrics are potent and universal, and the production is top-notch. It is a song that will uplift and inspire you and is a testament to DAMIEN’s artistry and talent. Fans of dark pop and darkwave electronic music will enjoy this song, which is likely to stand the test of time.
