A UK trio that play sweet and yet raw indie-power-pop music, quite powerful tunes with the twist of twee. Well it’s hard to define, but surely it’s such an ear candy. try them yourself.
Tell us more about the music scene in London.
London is an incredibly exciting and vibrant centre for live music, there’s so much going on it that it often takes a bit of rummaging to find real musical prizes, but plenty of fun searching in the meantime. We’re having a very good time.
Rhydian and Ritzy grew up together in rural North Wales, both kindred spirits and musical allies. Chance meeting with Justin (drums) and The Joy Formidable was born.
What is your current activities?
Preparing for the single which is due out in July through Another Music = Another Kitchen. Playing dates across the UK for the Skins Live Party Tour, and festival appearances lined up for the summer.
Music in one sentence?
I never like summing anything up in one sentence!
