Having recently supported Muse on their latest tour, the Welsh alternative rock band have a huge US following with the New York Times noting their ‘cryptic lyrics that glint with urgency’ and The NME having claimed lead singer Ritzy as ‘rock’s new heroine’.
‘You could compare The Joy Formidable’s sound to riding a rollercoaster: think dramatic holds followed by hurtling dips and dives that are a thrill to experience… the sharp timbre and Welsh twang of Bryan’s voice suggests Cerys Matthews gone grunge.’
‘A band that have ended up sounding stadium-ready by default; their music may be massive but the intentions and emotions beneath it are firmly rooted in the ground. Like The Breeders’ shoegaze-obsessed offspring, the trio have found themselves somewhere that embraces pop and then throws it into a pit of reverb and makes it squall for mercy.’
