The Joy Formidable are a little band, with anything but a litte sound, from Northern Whales. I’ve been all about these guys since they dropped their EP A Ballon Called Moaning in early 2009. I have also eagerly been waiting for a follow up and now the wait is finally over. Their new and debut album The Big Roar came out earlier this week in the US and it is way up top on my list of CDs to acquire. There is just something inspiring about the intensity behind The Joy Formidable and I can’t help but love their lead singer Ritzy with her commanding vocals. I am just waiting for these guys to blow up more in the States.
