Welsh trio with a predilection for delivering stadium-sized riffs with shoegazey vistas and dreamy post-punk riffage, The Joy Formidable return with their stunning new album Into The Blue.
Taking a cue from bands like Yeah Yeah Yeahs, My Bloody Valentine, and Arcade Fire, the trio have continued to push their expansive sound on previous studio albums, from the breakthrough debut The Big Roar (2011), through to the last studio album AAARTH (2018), whilst always maintaining the hook-driven indie rock foundation laid down on their debut EP A Balloon Called Moaning (2009).
Into the Blue is about opening your eyes to beauty and love again. Making it to the other side. Whilst not conceived as a metaphor for the times we all live in now, it certainly turned out that way.
