The good news today is the Welsh band has signed to Black Bell Records (founded by Passion Pit's Ayad Al Adhamy).
per Ayad - "The Joy Formidable grabbed my attention when I first heard the EP. The loud guitars, epic drums and dense textures with lush pop vocals and melodies just stood out from everything else I was listening to. Since then I've been an addict, and so has everyone I have shown this band to." - I concur
A Balloon Called Moaning was the band's debut EP, self-released, it was available for free for some time. Now, it's getting a proper release, due May 4 and should get the band a significantly larger listener base.
I'm guessing you want more -
