Current Joys is the enigmatic solo project of 25-year-old Henderson, Nevada-born songwriter Nicholas Rattigan. In addition to his minimal two-piece band with Jacob Rubeck, Surf Curse, Rattigan has been releasing a prolific catalog of heart-wrenching no wave ballads via Bandcamp.

As with his previous releases, Rattigan made most of his new album A Different Age alone with a single guitar, drums, a loop pedal, and his laptop. After testing out many of the songs for the first time on the road and at sold-out DIY shows in each of the cities he’s lived in, Rattigan consciously tries to distill the passion and spontaneity of his live performance into his recordings.
