Song Of The Day: The Joy Formidable – Sevier

unnamed (17)

In a way, it’s hard to believe that it’s been ten years since I first discovered The Joy Formidable. Seeing the Welsh trio live that year in support of their debut full length was a revelation. It was an impressive show – the band most definitely puts their all into their live performances, with every show I’ve seen since having been equally as impressive (though of course never quite as good as the first time).

I was reminded of the power of their live show a while back while revisiting a video of their SXSW 2011 performance at Mellow Johhny’s bike shop. And though the band is now 10 years older (aren’t we all?), their latest release Into The Blue shows that The Joy Formidable do not seem to have mellowed out much with the band still capable of cranking out big anthemic tunes like “Chimes” and “Sevier.” Check out the video for “Sevier” below.

Into The Blue is out now via Enci Records in North America, Full Time Hobby in Europe and Soundly Distro in the rest of the world.
