The Joy Formidable are a Welsh trio that is now based out of London. They recently released their first full-length album, The Big Roar. Their sound pulls in pieces from all over the stylistic map - some hazy vocals and fuzzy guitars from shoegaze, frenetic rhythms and reedy guitar from the post-punk era, serious stomp and crash of the so-called grunge sound. Perhaps the most compelling aspect of the band is the voice of Ritzy Bryan, which reminds me of a stronger version of a few 90's period UK bands that shall go nameless. Is The Joy Formidable the next big thing? Leave a comment below.
