Every once in a while you should watch this. And now’s the time.
And while you’re at it, try to win two tickets to the sold-out show.
Welsh rockers the Joy Formidable found international acclaim—and some rock star love from Dave Grohl—with their ethereal debut full-length, The Big Roar. And while busy touring the world in support of it, they still managed to find time to work on its follow-up, the recently released Wolf’s Law. No sophomore slump here. In fact, The Guardian says, “This is one for speakers, not headphones, a great dense whoosh of music that makes you feel like the bloke in the old Maxell tapes advert.” That even remains true in this stripped-down, emotional, acoustic version of one of the LP’s singles, “Silent Treatment,” done in an East Village hotel room.
In a room at the Bowery Hotel, the Joy Formidable’s singer-guitarist Ritzy Bryan and bassist Rhydian Dafydd discuss writing all the time, personal turbulence and the differences between their previous album and their newest release, out now on Canvasback/Atlantic Records.
