The Joy Formidable…

Tracks constructed around the guitar will always be my go-to. When the work creates a droning and buzzing effect, all the better. And when these elements are involved, the generic comparison is always My Bloody Valentine. Yet, this most always gets me to bite. I’m a sucker for a wall of sound created by noisy, chugging guitars. I’m enlisting Jealous Girlfriends to carry the comparison torch for the Joy Formidable, a trio out of the U.K.. who create a similar sound; although elements that are pop staples are interspersed throughout to create captivating, catchy numbers – take “Cradle” for instance with its backing ooohs/wooos, and  sped up moments of racketful exuberance.
