Thumbs Up The Joy Formidable.... A little band from North Wales

I'm surprised their isn't a thread on this kick ass, rockin trio from North Wales.

I absolutely love them! And to see them live is something else!

They rock out live so if you haven't seen them go!


They only have 2 albums out: The Big Roar and A Balloon called Moaning (an EP).

Their new album, unnamed should be great with 2 songs previewed: Wolf's Law and now Cholla. First one is quite the departure for them but its good. And Cholla sounds like TJF with their kick ass guitar sound.

Wolf's Law:

here's the preview of Cholla:
Track Of The Day #138 / News Stories / Music News from THE FLY - The UK's Most Popular Music Magazine

I had the pleasure of a Meet and greet at their show back in March in DC.. So nice and down to earth..

The album's great, you should check it out. I felt they could have trimmed a couple of the more similar tracks off, but overall it's one of the better debuts of last year. I do hear they're awesome live, I'm sure I'll catch them on the festival circuit once the new one is out.

They're last album was quite spectacular. This lead single didn't quite grab me, but I am still anxious to hear what's next.

The Big Roar is fucking awesome. Hanging out for them to tour Australia.

I heard Whirring first (av!) and followed up with the rest of The Big Roar, but was a bit disappointed.

but with this I buy that they're amazing live
