The Joy Formidable

The Joy Formidable first came to my attention back in November when they played Fun Fun Fun Fest here in Austin. I didn’t attend the show, but heard from several people that did that The JF stole the show when they played. I decided to seek out a few videos on YouTube and was hooked by Ritzy Bryan’s vocals and the heavy, power pop rhythms. They sort of reminded me of a less-poppy UK-based 90s alterna-rock band (that I enjoyed immensely) Echobelly. I quickly purchased their first full length, The Big Roar, and have been jamming it in the car ever since. Give it a shot, you might dig it.
