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.
