New Music: The Joy Formidable - I Don't Want To See You Like This
We've already brought you a host of tracks from The Joy Formidable, but to recap, The Joy Formidable are Ritzy Bryan (Lead vocals and Guitar), Rhydian Daffyd (Bass and Backing vocals) and Matt Thomas (Drums and Percussion).
Their debut single 'Austere', which we chose as a Weekend Anthem last week, featured in a 'skins' ad and also was subject to a fan-made video, which featured some interesting off-camera "masturbation", it was later banned by YouTube. Since then they have released, "My Beerdrunk Soul is Sadder Than a Hundred Dead Christmas Trees", "Cradle", "Whirring", "Greyhounds in The Slips" and "Popinjay".
The bands LP 'A Balloon Called Moaning' was released in February 2009 and featured, Austere, Cradle and Whirring. On a touring note, they have most notably supported Editors and Passion Pit......
