Earlier this year, Joyce Wrice captivated listeners with her Stay Around EP, a proper exhibition of her vocal talents sweetened by production from the likes of Mndsgn and SiR. Since then, the SoCal artist has shared the stage with the likes of Xavier Omär and Jeff Bernat, returning today with a duet of tracks for us to indulge in. As a collaborative effort with singer-songwriter Kay Franklin and Mndsgn, Rocket Science is an organic culmination of their creative talents. The opening title track hypnotizes with Joyce’s seductive vocals and Mndsgn’s underwater-like combo of synths and percussion, feeding into the groovy “Play Pretend.” The trio constructs an infectious mix of R&B, soul, and funk throughout, leaving us more than stoked to watch their solo and joint efforts in the near future.
