TVD SX(NW) | Day Three | The Joy Formidable

TVD received an email from Rhydian, bass player for London indie noise-poppers The Joy Formidable about two weeks ago and we're damn glad he wrote. These former 'demo of the week winners', as declared by Steve Lamacq back in mid-December, hit me with "Austere" which has an energy and vibe I haven't heard in quite a long time. Think a noisy Ultra Vivid Scene fronted by Karen O, and maybe you're in the ballpark.

I see Darryl Hall will be playing SXSW - Davy H should check him out! Is it coincidence that both have initials D.H.? Hmmmm.....

A very nice suprise ! This british group is a power-pop-punk trio ... Formidable ! Thanks for this brand new band. Their TV set is OK too. They are good live.
best regards from Geneva (CH)
