The Joy Formidable

After spending several years with the post-punk outfit Sidecar Kisses, vocalist/guitarist Ritzy Bryan and bassist Rhydian Dafydd left the lineup and launched the Joy Formidable, drawing heavily from shoegaze and noisy alt-rock to create their new group's sound. Formed in North Wales in 2007, the band later resettled in London, where original drummer Justin Stahley was replaced by Matt Thomas. The Joy Formidable began building a buzz in 2008, making appearances at several British festivals and earning high marks from publications like The Guardian, which recommended the band’s "darkly joyous soft-loud racket."

After releasing several singles, the group issued the mini-album A Balloon Called Moaning in early 2009. Tours with the Editors and Passion Pit followed, and the Joy Formidable issued a live album, First You Have to Get Mad, before signing with Black Bell Records, an independent label run by Passion Pit member Ayad Al Adhamy. With Black Bell’s support, A Balloon Called Moaning was released stateside in 2010. The Joy Formidable toured throughout the year and kicked off 2011 with the international release of The Big Roar, their well received, full-length studio debut. The band spent the following year writing its second record while on the road supporting Muse. The resulting Wolf's Law, which was recorded in the small town of Casco, Maine, arrived in early 2013. ~ Andrew Leahey

Please read this because it's true. The Joy Formidable are a band worth supporting. Please go buy their albums if you haven't already. I can't promise you'll be kissed by a walking, talking computer with giant red letters all over the screen but you never know...

This band is rapidly becoming my favorite. I'm 35 and I've loved everything from Nirvana to Tool to Deathcab for Cutie to Belle and Sebastian. This band is nothing like any of them, but somehow manages to fit somewhere near the axis of my musical coordinate system. Awesome stuff.

amazing alternative music

Great stage presence - they look like they just really enjoy being up there playing music together, which seems like a rare attitude among bands as good as they are. Agree with comments below, kinda forgot about them for a while but went back and got their album - definitely one of the best in my collection.
