JOY ON FIRE // “UH HUH” // OFFICIAL VIDEO // 2020

The official video for Joy on Fire's outstanding song "Uh Huh" blends incomparable hard-edged music from the Trenton-based punk-jazz group with ominous and downright disturbing imagery, creating a compelling commentary on gun culture in the United States.

The video has received honors at nine major international film festivals. It was nominated for best music video at the Hollywood Verge Film Festival and was chosen as a Semifinalist at the Sweden Film Awards. It was also named an official selection of the Munich Music Video Awards, Brussels Independent Film Festival, Oregon Short Film Festival, PRISMA Rome Independent Film Awards, LA Rocks Film Festival,  London Rocks Film Festival, and Brighton Rocks Film Festival.

Joy on Fire is John Paul Carillo (bass, guitar), Anna Meadors (baritone and alto saxophones, vocals), Chris Olsen (drums, percussion), and Dan Gutstein (lyrics, vocals). The song “Uh Huh” was composed by Carillo / Gutstein / Joy on Fire (2020).

A punk-jazz band with roots in Baltimore and North Carolina, Joy on Fire has produced cutting-edge instrumental music for more than ten years. Recently, the group has added vocals as part of a limited-edition 180 gram EP, Thunderdome (2020), that features two singles and three remixes.
