The Joy Formidable - The Big Roar
Last year’s mini-album created such a wave of anticipation for the Welsh trio that they became the great new indie hopes elect; succession to the throne dependant upon the full set - no pressure then! Despite the regurgitation of half of ‘Balloon’ here (hell, The Drums got away with it!), the goods have indeed been produced.

The band’s trademark remains a powerful wall of sound. Bolt on an undeniably zealous execution, a set of simple yet well-written songs, add an element of confident adventure via some experimentation and diversity and the rebirth of indie may just have found its leading protagonists.
