A Welsh rock trio with a predilection for delivering stadium-sized riffs with shoegazey vistas and dreamy post-punk riffage, the Joy Formidable emerged in 2011 with the fiery Big Roar, which effectively paired '90s alt-rock sonic might with indie pop smarts. Taking a cue from bands like Yeah Yeah Yeahs, My Bloody Valentine, and Arcade Fire, the trio continued to push their already expansive sound further on subsequent offerings like Wolf's Law (2013) and AAARTH (2018), while maintaining the hook-driven indie rock foundation laid down on their chart-topping debut.

 

Their fifth album, Into the Blue, surfaced in 2021, tackling themes such as personal adversity, overcoming challenges, and making it through to the other side.
