Featured International Artist: The Joy Formidable (UK)

Written by Rory Burbeck | Tuesday, Mar 5, 2013

The Joy Formidable incorporates many different sounds into their music. Ultimately, these are just some good, catchy rock tunes. The distorted guitars are a highlight, engineering a wall of sound that doesn’t smack you in the face. The songs start out as simple, blissful rock tunes. At times, the music transforms into driven, borderline-metal riffs. Interesting, engaging, and diverse in sound, The Joy Formidable is for any fan of music. The sound simply FILLS your speakers.
