The band live and die for each track
The eagerly anticipated album from London based indie-rock three-piece The Joy Formidable far exceeds all expectation. Showcasing intensely forceful build ups, powerful hooks and an utter franticness that echoes early day Arcade Fire, there’s no quiet-storm half-heartedness here as the band live and die for each track. Opener ‘The Everchanging Spectrum Of A Lie’ builds in energy and emotion while combining a nursery rhyme sing song quality in the form of Ritzy’s vocals while tracks like ‘Buoy’ do the darker rough edged guitar thing. Full of surprises TJF cover a huge spectrum of sounds, giving a lesson in how to make quality music.

If you didn't know, Defeater / Alcoa frontman and all-round top bloke Derek Archambault is in need of a new hip. The good news is a LOT of people have been helping out by donating to his PledgeMusic campaign. Are you one of them?
