New from the UK - The Joy Formidable

Too Hot for YouTube!
Someone You Should Know



The Joy Formidable by Toby Hudson


NEW STUFF WE REALLY LIKE - With crackling guitars and a haunting sound (only scary in the sense that their rock is beautiful and that their songs linger with you long after you think you're done listening) we give you Welsh trio The Joy Formidable (Ritzy Bryan, Rhydian Dafydd and Matt Thomas). This unsigned band sold out shows during their debut tour of the UK last summer. By fall they were touring with Editors, Passion Pit and The Temper Trap.

Extremely Limited NYC Shows This Week - We're not going to catch the band in New York this week as they support Passion Pit - but you should if you can make the shows. The Joy Formidable’s debut album will be released in June. Below you will find the new fan-made video for The Joy Formidable's "Austere." The clip was formerly available on the band's YouTube page but was removed by the video-hosting service, owned by Google. "It violated their terms and conditions," a US rep for The Joy Formidable told me this week. "Three warnings and they delete your account." (Yikes.) Enjoy the video
