The Joy Formidable

Add Date: March 22

Artist: The Joy Formidable

Album: The Big Roar

Label: Atlantic

Genre: Indie rock

Comments: The Big Roar, the full-length debut from The Joy Formidable, lives up to its name. From the exploding first track, "The Everchanging Spectrum Of A Lie", to the last, this female-led Welsh rock trio revels in a bombastic sound full of fuzzy guitar riffs and pounding beats to create a full fleshed romantic garage sound. The Big Roar is an audacious rebellion from any sort of musical or emotional restraint. The one drawback is the protracted length of the songs. I recommend "Whirring".
