THE JOY FORMIDABLE
When The Joy Formidable formed in North Wales in 2007, they drew heavily from shoegaze and noisy alt-rock to create the band’s signature sound. They began instantly building buzz in 2008, making appearances at several large British festivals and earning quick critical acclaim. Described by Rolling Stone as “wickedly bracing and Himalaya-huge,” the dynamic live band faced the self-appointed challenge of ensuring their onstage energy and ability to connect with audiences translated via recording. Twelve months later, the band created a critically acclaimed album that has “musically and emotionally put them through the wringer,”” but with the huge payoff of the sonic boom people have come to expect from the trio.
