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.

January, tour. February, tour. March, you get the picture.
We Are The Ocean are hitting the road hard this spring. Good. Very good.
'Skydancer' was recorded in the same sessions as last year's 'Earthwalker', but don't think it's just a collection of B-sides. Oh no.
