Cool Band: The Joy Formidable

Just the other day I realized how I have a few songs by The Joy Formidable floating around some of my playlists and then I noticed how I like every single one of those songs. That is why I would like to introduce you to: The Joy Formidable.

The Joy Formidable are by no means a new band. I have heard their name buzzing around for a while and they were featured on last year’s SXSW festival. Their biggest claim to fame so far: a track on the Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 1 soundtrack. It is easily my favorite song on that entire soundtrack and then I figured out that I liked many more of their songs.

The Joy Formidable – End Tapes:

They released their first album The Big Roar last year in 2011 and if I have to describe their sound it’s somewhere between indierock with a dose of pop, catchy lyrics and some dark and dreamy qualities to it. I have especially been enjoying a song called Cradle in the Fang Island Remix which goes like this:

Two other songs I like are Whirring and Austere:

By now I am very curious to hear their first album and maybe I will pick it up when I’m in London next week. I like the catchy lyrics and overall vibe of the songs listed in this post so I’m thinking I will dig the album too.

What do you think of The Joy Formidable?
