The Occasion Biography

Joy Zipper is an indie pop duo from Long Island New York made up of Tabitha Tindale and Vincent Cafiso, who are also a married couple. The duo have been crafting summery, ethereal dream pop since the late 1990s. The band is named for Tindale's mother.

Their songs are underpinned with darker scarred lyrics (suggested in interviews to have been inspired by the death of Cafiso's father) causing them to be famously compared to, 'a candy apple with a razor blade inside'.

Musical influences of the band vary from 1960s rock outfits The Beatles, The Velvet Underground and most associated, The Beach Boys, to early 1990s noise rock pioneers My Bloody Valentine, and The Breeders.

The single "Baby You Should Know" has been featured on Fox Television's The O.C. and "Go Tell the World" was featured in an ad for Nike Soccer and in a season two episode of Grey's Anatomy.

Joy Zipper covered the Pixies "Wave Of Mutilation" for American Laundromat Records compilation "Dig For Fire - a tribute to Pixies" (2007).

In 2008, Joy Zipper covered the title track for the American Laundromat Records produced Cure tribute "Just Like Heaven - a tribute to The Cure". The Wedding Present, The Submarines, Dean & Britta and Tanya Donelly also appear on the project.
