Hidden in the Limelight

The Joy Formidable are a Welsh alternative rock trio that formed in 2007. They have toured with the likes of Passion Pit and Editors  and received great reviews from NME, The Guardian and The New York Times. The band creates abstract melodies that infuse with poetic lyrics ; making a crazily addictive substance.TJF have gone to the depths of the soul, covering emotions from eternal optimism to manic depression.

Having recently signed to Canvasback Records, in the summer of 2010 the band have gone on to produce their debut album, “The Big Roar” early in January 2011. From the album, singles such as “Whirring” and “Austere” are getting major radio play.  “Whirring” in particular has received over 100,000 hits on YouTube.
