JOY FORMIDABLE'S "Balloon Called Moaning" EP

Rhydia, Ritzy and Matt of Joy Formidable
Rhydian Dafydd, Ritzy Bryan and Matt Thomas from Joy Formidable.

The Joy Formidable is a three-piece band from Wales whose been around for at least three years and has been dubbed by London press as the "one to watch." Ritzy's pop and sugary sweet vocals layers nicely above grungy guitars and hard beats echoing the sounds of Belly and The Breeders. In May they released their 8-track EP, "A Balloon Called Moaning" from Black Bell Records with a forthcoming debut album currently in the works.

They just played The Bootleg Theater in L.A. in August but in November, they return stateside with dates on the east coast.
