Today's Candy: The Joy Formidable
by Jess Grant
Despite having been together since 2007, The Joy Formidable only got around to releasing their debut album, "The Big Roar," in January of last year. Still, it was worth the wait -- as soaring single, "A Heavy Abacus," did show. Dirty Strat riffs, thickened basslines and and Ritzy Bryan's tenacious (albeit angelic) vocals -- it's like nostalgic epic/intimate 90s alt-rock at its female-fronted finest! Listen below! And (shock and awe) The Joy Formidable is going "to radio" with this song and getting some nice ads (as they say in the old fashioned radio business). That's right. Nice ADSz, baby!
