With thousands of bands descending on Austin a few weeks ago for SXSW, it’s a crapshoot whether or not your band will receive any press. But, when you’re as amazing as Wales’ The Joy Formidable, people take notice in a big way. Alongside Odd Future, The Joy Formidable was one of the most buzzworthy bands playing 6th Street this year and it’s easy to see/hear why. For a 3-piece, The Joy Formidable makes a tremendous noise – pretty female vocals, dreamy yet loud guitars. Think somewhere between Great Northern and Curve.
